EYE ON OPERATIONS

Frozen bakery products supplier Baker Boy Bake Shop Inc. expects by next summer to complete a 50,000-square-foot expansion to its 85,000-square-foot plant in Dickinson, N.D., according to a report by KFYR-TV in Bismarck, N.D. Baker Boy supplies frozen bread, rolls, donuts, sweet goods, biscuits and other products to foodservice and convenience store operators. President Guy Moos told KFYR the expansion includes plans for automated donut production and a new artisan bread line.


Texas Hill Country Barbecue, Inc., (THCB) Arlington, Texas, said it plans to expand its Henderson, Texas, plant to meet growing retail and wholesale orders.

Said Jason Ford, THCB president and CEO, "We are pleased to announce that we have an immediate need for an increase in production to fulfill current requested wholesale orders. Our wholesale partners are requesting products such as brisket, smoked turkeys, smoked hams and other refined THCB products for their holiday needs.

"THCB's retail restaurants will have the ability to serve their customers with quality smoked hams, whole turkeys and chicken, in a key market segment that will compete against honey baked ham and other competitors nationally."

No further expansion details were available. THCB processes smoked meat products including brisket, sausage, pork ribs, pulled pork, barbecue sauce and other products.
