Meet a Scientologist Breaks Bread With Bakers Peter and Helena Storfer

Austrian Scientologists Peter and Helena Storfer's award-winning bakery produces high-quality, certified organic baked goods.

​Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode premiering Nov. 19 featuring the owners of award-winning Knusperstube Bakery, Peter and Helena Storfer.

MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

Peter and Helena Storfer are the husband and wife entrepreneurs behind Knusperstube, Austria’s hottest bakery. Knusperstube has been in the Storfer family for three generations, but under Peter and Helena’s leadership, it’s a modern-day success story delivering high-quality, certified organic bread to cities across Austria.


Peter Storfer was born and raised in Wolfsburg, Austria, where he began his career as a bread boy. Peter and Helena, his wife and partner, have dedicated their lives to learning every facet of this family business, from creating the crustiest breads with the fluffiest centers to innovating a method that delivers fresh bread to stores across the country. In 1995, European trade regulations flooded the market with cheap competitors—a move that almost bankrupted the bakery. After Peter and Helena took charge of Knusperstube, they doubled down, not to create a cheaper bread, but a better one, using finer ingredients from an old-world recipe. Their tenacity paid off. Today, Knusperstube is a nationally recognized, award-winning bakery that produces five tons of baked goods every day. The Storfer family carries on a tradition of breaking bread with friends and strangers all over Austria.
