Plymouth, Michigan Bakery
In the fall of 2004, Aunt Millie’s purchased a 64,000 square foot building in Plymouth, Michigan. Over the winter, the company made minor renovations and installed approximately $6 million in equipment. “We needed additional capacity to produce buns,” said John F. Popp, Aunt Millie’s President. “Over the last six months we acquired a number of new customers. This led to a higher demand for buns than we anticipated. This new plant will allow us to meet that demand."
Since the plant’s opening in May 2005, Aunt Millie’s has invested additional equipment including a state-of-the-art breadline. Plymouth Bakery produces Aunt Millie’s hamburger and hot dog buns.
