The American Express Bakery is a 85-year old business in Mumbai (formerly called Bombay) , founded by a Goan immigrant, Jose Carvalho. The headquarters and works are located in the Macbeth House on Clare Road, Byculla. Carvalho had purchased the property from a Jewish businessman in 1921.
The name was gained as a result of its speedy ("express") catering to American ships visiting Bombay Harbour.
The business has since passed into the hands of Joseph's son, Ross Carvalho, with his sons, Emil and Yvan Carvalho, recently taking over the day-to-day operations.
