HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - A Henderson bakery shuttered after cake maker Hostess went bankrupt last fall now has a new owner.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the bakery on Conestoga Way was purchased by Georgia-based Flowers Foods, which owns a variety of brands including Nature's Own.
Flowers Foods bought the bakery as part of a $355 million package deal that includes 20 bakeries, 36 distributions and the brands Wonder, Merita, Home Pride, Butternut and Nature's Pride.
Flowers CEO Allen Shiver said in a statement Monday that the purchases fit with his company's goal of growing through acquisitions. He says consumers can expect to see well-known and loved brands returning to shelves over time.
The company's specific plans for the Henderson bakery were not made public.
