Hostess To Sell Wonder Bread
Huffington Post - about 4 years
NEW YORK — Hostess has found a new home for its most popular breads, including the iconic Wonder bread. The bankrupt maker of Twinkies, Devil Dogs and other snack cakes said late Friday that it selected bids by rival bakery Flower Foods Inc. to buy six of its bread brands for $390 million. Flower Foods, based in Thomasville, Ga., is best known for Tastykakes but also makes breads including Nature's Own and Cobblestone Mill. Hostess is expected to announce buyers for its famed dessert cakes in coming weeks. The company has said a wide variety of parties have expressed interest in its brands, including national supermarket chains and the makers of brand name packaged foods. Flower Foods was selected as the "stalking horse" bidder for the bread brands. That means higher competing bids can still be made and the final deal must be approved in bankruptcy court. The company made two separate bids for the Hostess breads; a $360 million bid for Wonder, Nature's Pride, B ...

Judge OKs Hostess' plan to shut down
Fox News - about 4 years
Twinkies, Ho Hos and Wonder Bread are up for sale now that a bankruptcy judge cleared the way for Hostess Brands Inc. to fire its 18,500 workers and wind down its operations. A last-ditch effort to end a strike with Hostess' bakers union failed Tuesday night and Judge Robert Drain on Wednesday approved the company's request to shut down its business and sell the pieces to the highest bidder. Hostess management told Drain that they needed to begin the liquidation process quickly to take advantage of a surge in outside interest in its brands, which in addition to its namesake include Nature's Pride, Dolly Madison and Drake's. Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, also wanted to quickly shut down because it has been spending about $1 million a day in payroll without any income since it halted operations last week. The company will send out termination notices to its employees on Wednesday, said CEO Gregory Rayburn. "Those employees now need to look for work," he said. Hostess ...

Hostess Bankruptcy: Flowers Foods Has Chance To Save Twinkies, Snack Company
Bradenton Patch - about 4 years
While news of two young Sarasota investors created a media frenzy about their court filing to save Twinkies this week, a big-name baker with a southern Manatee County location is reportedly in the mix. Thomasville, Georgia-based Flowers Foods Inc., is going through lending renogations to set itself up for a bid to buy the Hostess and Twinkies brands, The Wall Street Journal reports. Flowers Foods maintains a bakery plant plus a store off of U.S. 301 at 63rd Avenue — not too far away from the Merita Discount Bakery Store that serves as a Hostess/Wonder bread outlet on Tallevast Road. Hostess CEO Gregory Rayburn appeared on CNBC Wednesday afternoon announcing Hostess would start laying off employees today. Flowers Foods brands include Tastykake, Nature's Own, Sunbeam, Blue Bird, among others. Stock of Flowers Foods is trading around $23 per share now, and gained a 20 percent increase earlier this month among the chatter that Hostess—the only other publicly traded snack food b ...

Gregory Rayburn, Hostess CEO, Allegedly Got 300 Percent Raise As Company Approached Bankruptcy
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Hostess could have ensured the Twinkie's survival simply by paying the executives less, one of the unions organizing company workers alleges. Of course, to hear the company tell it, the maker of Wonder Bread and Twinkies simply can’t survive ongoing worker strikes at its plants. The company claims its hand was forced when it only came to an agreement with one of its two unions after several months in negotiations. The union says there’s another way the Twinkie-maker could have avoided liquidating and laying off all of its 18,500 workers: by paying the executives less money. In a press release, the BCTGM claimed Hostess tripled the pay of CEO Gregory Rayburn up to $2,550,000 as the company prepared to file for bankruptcy. Read More... More on Video

Hostess Strike Leads To Permanent Closure Of Bakeries
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Hostess Brands Inc. is permanently closing three bakeries following a nationwide strike by its bakers union. The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread said Monday that the strike has prevented it from producing and delivering products, and it is closing bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati. The facilities employ 627 workers. Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, operates 36 bakeries nationwide and has about 18,300 employees. It warned earlier this month that the strike, by about 30 percent of its workforce, could lead to bakery closures. "We deeply regret this decision, but we have repeatedly explained that we will close facilities that are no longer able to produce and deliver products because of a work stoppage — and that we will close the entire company if widespread strikes cripple our business," Hostess Brands CEO Gregory F. Rayburn said. Hostess said customers will not be affected by the closure ...

Beware: When You Talk Politics, Employees Listen
Inc. Magazine - over 4 years
Apparently, employers play a big role in keeping employees politically informed and active. The election is over, but that doesn't mean the office water cooler chats about politics suddenly stop. And heads up--your employees likely take your opinions on matters like health care and taxes to heart, according to an annual research report from the Business Industry Political Action Committee. The report, which surveyed more than 500 people across various business industries, found that 35% of employees view their employer as the most credible source on issues affecting their job, company and industry--even above media (16%) and their own political parties (12%). An overwhelming 75% said they find political information provided by their employers useful. "Since we began our outreach and monitoring, we have seen a fourfold increase in employer-to-employee political communications," wrote BIPAC President and CEO Gregory S. Casey in a post for the Harvard Business Review blog. When BIPAC ...

Hostess Narrowly Wins Teamsters Support for New Deal
Fox Business News - over 4 years
Hostess Brands Inc.'s largest union narrowly voted to accept a revamped labor deal, putting the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread one step closer to its goal of surviving a second stint in bankruptcy. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which represents 7,500 of Hostess's 19,000 employees, has agreed to new collective-bargaining agreements that will cut employees' pay and limit their participation in controversial pension plans--"deep" concessions that the company's chief executive says is the only way for the Irving, Texas, company to emerge from Chapter 11. The vote was close, with 53.6% voting in favor of the deal and 46.4% voting against it, according to numbers provided by Leigh Strope, a spokeswoman for the Teamsters. Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall said in a statement that the voting process--which kicked off Aug. 25--represented a "difficult decision" for the Hostess workers. "Our members are frustrated at being in the position to bail out the compan ...

More Trouble For Twinkies Maker
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
DALLAS -- The company that makes Twinkies, Wonder bread and Ding Dongs says it's making a final offer to workers to accept cost-cutting before it asks a bankruptcy court to impose the cuts. Hostess Brands Inc. wants the Teamsters and bakers' unions to accept reduced pension benefits and changes in work rules to lower costs. It wants to outsource some delivery work. The company said Saturday that if the unions reject the offer, it will push ahead with efforts in bankruptcy court to throw out the unions' collective bargaining agreements. A union official warned that could lead to a strike. Hostess Brands filed for Chapter 11 protection in January, its second trip through bankruptcy court in less than a decade. A trial to decide the fate of the union contracts is scheduled to start Tuesday. Hostess wants to withdraw from some multi-employer pension plans, although it opened the door Saturday to possibly rejoining a few of the financially strongest plans. New hi ...
