Baker’s Pride Inc. has opened a new hi-tech donut facility at the Mt. Pleasant Street Bakery, a Baker’s Pride company. The facility, located in Burlington, Iowa, is anticipated to begin production later this year.
When completed, the 65,000 sq.-ft. facility will produce both frozen ready-to-finish and ready-to-sell donuts. The facility will help expand the firm’s donut product portfolio to include filled and yeast raised donuts for the first time as well as an expanded menu of cake-style donuts.
“When completed, the Mt. Pleasant Street facility in Burlington, Iowa will utilize the latest baking technology, create jobs within our community and produce delicious products for our In-Store bakery customers nationwide,” Rob Brookhart, president of Baker’s Pride, said in a press release.
