We never had that language in our contract- Cake and bread routes could be combined at the company's discretion. It was one of the merger partners, Interstate Brands, that ran completely separate bread and cake bakeries and distribution systems. The other partner, Continental Baking, ran separate bakeries and distribution in the big metro areas and combination bakeries and distribution.

BTW, found 20 Hostess tractors and trailers all but abandoned in Waterloo today, including 3 Argosys and 5 or so FLBs. Oldest tractors were a couple 1991s.

Jack, I don't know the details but I am sure there is enough blame to go around to all parties involved. The bottom line is nobody won. Wayne

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

As I understand it, in a lot of areas, the teamsters contracts stated that the trucks that delivered the bread could not deliver the pastries, TO THE SAME STORE! If that is true, well I won't rant, you draw your own conclusions!

When Hostess closed they had 600 job openings listed, despite having already laid off half their workforce. The jobs at Hostess had gotten so bad that nobody wanted them. For example, when Hostess reassigned drivers at the Hodgkins, Il bakery to sleeper teams, over twenty of the drivers went up the street to UPS and were promptly hired.

I wonder if a job at what Hostess offered would have been better than no job at all?

The real estate scenerio is the most probable, don't the "Walnut's" source 99.9% of all their cheap crap out of China ???

The Walmart buyout is a persistent rumor, but I doubt they're interested in a bakery- Walmart's strategy is to have vendors supply rather than make their own food products. However, they might be interested in some of Hostess bakeries as store sites, they tend to be around the square footage and acreage WalMart looks for.
