On April 25, 2013, Hostess Brands, LLC, a new company and employer under new ownership announced plans to expand and re-launch its bakery in Emporia, Kan.
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held today.
Attendees at the Ribbon Cutting were representatives from Apollo Global Management, Metropoulous & Co., Hostess Brands LLC management, Governor Brownback, Mayor Rob Gilligan, RDA Chair Job Geitz, Federal, State and Local elected officials.
