The Home Baking Company was a commercial bakery founded in 1920 by Tom Stevens, a Greek immigrant to Birmingham. The bakery was located at 900 16th Street North with a distribution center and retail outlet at 413 Finley Avenue.

Stevens remained CEO of the company until his death in 1983, and was succeeded by his son, Ernest. The company was earning $15 million per year in 1999 when it was acquired by the Flowers Baking Company of Thomasville, Georgia.
