More Than A Bakery, LLC is pleased to announce the creation of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to be located in Versailles, KY. The bakery is planned to be between 250,000-300,000 square feet and will be located on 100+ acres to allow for future expansion. Products to be manufactured include cookies, crackers, crumbs and inclusions with customers ranging from Fortune 100 companies to smaller, regional businesses.
More Than A Bakery brings together baking executives with decades of experience to create an environment very unique in industry. The company is designing a work experience that’s attractive as a place to live, work, and spend a career. Life needs balance and the company strives to ensure that people enjoy their careers. We are committed to providing the people who work at More Than A Bakery with a living wage and an environment where careers can grow and thrive.
Construction on the More Than A Bakery facility is targeted to begin this summer, with manufacturing likely to get underway by the end of 2017. Within a few years of completion, More Than a Bakery is expected to create more than 300 jobs that will include a comprehensive benefits package and the opportunity to work in a facility unlike any other in the industry.
More Than A Bakery is affiliated with Richmond Baking, the oldest family owned cookie and cracker bakery in the United States, dating back to 1902. Richmond Baking has facilities in Richmond, IN and Alma, GA where capacity constraints could limit the company’s continued growth without the creation of More Than A Bakery.
More Than A Bakery combines the stability and foundation of a company that is more than 100 years old with a truly unique work environment and culture. We want employees who come to work for More Than A Bakery to have work experiences unlike those they’ve previously encountered. We see this new focus on work-life balance as a recipe for success and, ultimately, one that translates into a win-win for everyone. Simply put, we want our folks to live a good, balanced life. That is why we strive to be so much more…than a bakery.
