When Norwegian immigrant Norsk Johannessen opened his little bakery in southwestern Minnesota more than 80 years ago he couldn't have foreseen just how successful it would be and how long it would remain in business.

The bakery today has become a destination for locals and visitors who snap up the fresh baked breads, cookies and cakes that fill the store every morning.

Jason Davis goes "On the Road" to Benson, Minnesota to meet owner Toby Johannessen who is third generation to run the famous store and we also get to meet his daughter who will be the fifth.
