HORSHAM, PA. — Bimbo Bakeries USA said it will halt production at its Fresno, Calif., baking facility on or about March 27 and will shift production to other bakeries in the company’s manufacturing network, mainly to its more efficient facility in Sacramento, Calif. The company previously closed its bun production at the Fresno plant in August 2014.

“Our goal of producing the highest quality, freshest bakery products includes utilizing our newest and most efficient plants and equipment in our California manufacturing network,” said Joe Dangelmaier, vice-president of operations for B.B.U.’s Pacific Business Unit. “All of our products will still be available to our valued customers during the transition.”

According to the 2014 Directory & Buyers Guide published by Milling & Baking News, the Fresno facility makes bread, bun and roll products under the Rainbo, Iron Kids, Earth Grains and Roman Meal brands.

Your two outlet stores in Fresno recently ceased operating due to production operation changes. Will your company be reopening any outlet stores in this area in near future? Thank you in advance for your response.

I've been going to the Fresno facility for 40 years. Fresno is a hard hit area and closing this bakery will result in many many families hardship. Could you leave an outlet here at least? Rising costs and unemployment here cause many to go without. The bakery outlet helped so many low income families.
