SHIRLEY, N.Y. — Uncle Wally’s has acquired SKU Foods, a manufacturer of "slice-and-bake" muffins. In 2007, Uncle Wally’s and SKU Foods formed a strategic alliance to produce Uncle Wally’s Oven Luv’n Muffins, ready-to-bake refrigerated muffin dough available at select supermarkets throughout the country.
"The acquisition of SKU Foods will allow us to expand the refrigerated dough category, coming one step closer to making Uncle Wally’s a household name," said Lou Avignone, president and chief executive officer of Shirley-based Uncle Wally’s.
A privately-held gourmet and wholesale muffin company, Uncle Wally’s manufactures products sold in more than 7,000 stores nationwide.
