    Guate Pan Bakery Inc. has been at 908 Broadway Chelsea, MA 02150 for about 16 years serving the diverse/latino/immigrant community with fair prices. My daughters recently created a new logo for our family business; however, due to the current pandemic we have been unable to apply this logo to our business location. We would love to learn more about this opportunity. Thank you.
