our roots 

2001 The Beginning

In 2001, a local couple with a unique idea, perfected recipe, & a dream started TM Monkey Bread on 9th & boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. Throughout the years, they expanded the business, having three locations throughout Ocean City, NJ in 2007.

2011 New Young Owner

In 2011, the business was sold to young Ocean City native, Laura Idell. Idell had been studying HR Management & Business Management at Rowan University. Idell had dreamed of becoming a business owner later in life. Idell worked for the former owners throughout college, & completed her internship through Monkey Bread. As graduation approached, the former owner Mary Wright, had an offer for Idell that made her dreams of becoming a business owner come true. Since taking over ownership in 2011, Idell has grown her business into selling one of the best breakfast sandwich’s on the Ocean City, NJ Boardwalk, fresh fruit smoothies, Acai bowls, & a variety of flavors of Monkey Bread. Since 2001, Monkey Bread has been an iconic family tradition on the Ocean City, New Jersey’s boardwalk. All of Monkey Bread’s products are hand-tossed and baked to perfection in house. The aroma of cinnamon and sugar is sure to lure customers to Monkey Bread’s storefront that lies beneath a bright orange awning on the boardwalk.
