“Today we’re making 100 special deliveries to local charities and first responders across Philadelphia and surrounding communities,” said Tastykake president Paul Ridder.
Tasty Baking Co., the maker of Tastykakes and other packaged sweets, will cut 32 jobs at its former corporate headquarters in Philadelphia, a move decided upon after it was acquired by Flower Foods Inc. this year, Tasty said Friday.
Mayor Michael Nutter says the broad outlines of the Tastykake deal look good to him.
Flowers Foods Inc. is buying Tasty Baking Co., maker of Tastykakes, for about $165 million.
Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Friday morning in the city’s “Hunting Park West” neighborhood for a new development that includes a much-needed supermarket.
Tastykakes are making a comeback at the Phillies’ ballpark this season.
