Awrey Bakeries firing up ovens with new owner
100-year-old business had been facing closure
LIVONIA, Mich. – The 100-year-old Awrey Bakeries is back in the baking business beginning Monday.
The reopening comes just month after it was purchased by Minnie Marie Bakers, Inc.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10 a.m.
Awrey Bakeries began in Detroit as a family business and moved to a production facility in Livonia in the 1970s.
The company, known for its windmill logo, fell on hard times and filed for bankruptcy protection in 2005. An investment group purchased it in bankruptcy, but in recent years demanded concessions from unionized workers to keep the company going.
