XLVII is the number forty-seven in Roman numerals. Its significance comes from owner Léon Etienne Speth’s grandfather who was born in 1947. Léon comes from a line of chefs & bakers. It started with his grandfather who was a baker and continued to his father who is a chef. Léon grew up on the border of France & Germany and came to America in 2017. He speaks English, French, and German fluently. When he came to America, Léon found a profound lack of an authentic Bavarian pretzel. He took it upon himself to start XLVII's Bakery to correct that. In remembering his roots, he has made sure to incorporated both French and German cultures in his baking.
Léon has been married to his wife Tové Speth for 3 years. Together they have two sons, Enzo and Valentino Etienne Speth. They enjoy all things Colorado has to offer as well as traveling. Together they make a fantastic team.
