THOMASVILLE, Ga., June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Flowers Foods, Inc. (NYSE: FLO), producer of Nature's Own, Dave's Killer Bread, Wonder, Canyon Bakehouse, Tastykake, and other bakery foods, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Koffee Kup Bakery, Inc. (KKB) in Burlington, Vermont from the court-appointed receiver of the assets. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition includes three closed bakeries located in Burlington and Brattleboro, Vermont and North Grosvenor Dale, Connecticut, and the Koffee Kup Bakery and Vermont Bread Company brands.

"This acquisition brings brands and production capacity in the Northeast, a key growth market for our company," said Ryals McMullian, Flowers Foods president and CEO.
