New Knoxville bakery to create more than 100 jobs


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Flowers Foods is opening a new bakery in Knoxville, expected to create more than 100 jobs.

The bakery will be located on NW Park Drive in Knoxville, and is scheduled to open in late May.

"This bakery will be producing Nature's Own, Merita, and Wonder breads and will help us meet the increasing demand for these breads in a region that encompasses parts of Tennessee, North and South Carolina, and Virginia," said Gene D. Lord, Flowers Foods executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Flowers will initially employ about 60 people, but the number will increase in the future as more production shifts are added.
