Sara Lee Frozen Bakery—a baked desserts, treats, and snacks provider formed in 2018 as part of a divestiture from Tyson Foods—is on a path for significant growth this year. The brand opened a new R&D center earlier this year, and now has pledged to invest an additional $19.8 million to expand its Tarboro, North Carolina, food manufacturing center.
“Sara Lee Frozen Bakery recently celebrated the 30-year anniversary of our Tarboro bakery—a milestone that demonstrates the dedication of our employees and our commitment to the Tarboro community,” said Craig Bahner, Chief Executive Officer of Sara Lee Frozen Bakery. “We are so pleased to be the recipient of the One North Carolina grant, which will enable the expansion of our bakery, bolster production of our irresistible foods, and create more jobs in Edgecombe County.”
According to the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the expansion will be facilitated with a performance-based grant of $500,000 from the One North Carolina Fund, which provides financial assistance to local governments to attract economic investments and create jobs.
Sara Lee Frozen Bakery operates three bakeries in North Carolina, Michigan, and Massachusetts. The Tarboro, NC, bakery produces a wide range of frozen bakery and dessert products, including pound cake, croissants, muffins, biscuits, cheesecake, brownies, and more.
