NEW YORK — Local artisan bakery Tom Cat Bakery has partnered with food redistributor Dot Foods, Inc. to distribute its handcrafted fully baked frozen bread throughout North America.

“We are thrilled to partner with Dot Foods and bring our unique breads to a wider audience,” said Keith Bleier, president of Tom Cat Bakery. “We continue to handcraft our bread in New York City as we have for over 35 years. With the support of Dot Foods, we can now provide that same four-star experience to chefs across the country.”

Tom Cat Bakery’s bread comes in many different styles and shapes, including buns, baguettes and pullman loaves. The bakery said distributors can buy one case or multiple pallets of its bread with minimal lead time.

“Our breads have been a staple among Michelin star and James Beard award-winning chefs in New York City,” said Robert Pim, vice president of frozen sales at Tom Cat Bakery. “We believe that the combination of our premium products and Dot Foods' extensive distribution network will make this partnership a huge success.”

According to Tom Cat Bakery, Dot Foods is the largest food industry redistributor in North America, serving all 50 states and more than 55 countries.
