Empire Bakery Announces $10.4 Million Facility Expansion
October 23, 2018

Empire Bakery Commissary, LLC, a commercial producer of ready-made cakes, cookies, and single-serve desserts, has announced that the firm will invest $10.4 million to expand its facility in the Town of Rocky Mount in Franklin County.

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, Empire Bakery provides ready-to-sell products for retailers throughout the U.S. The company offers custom programs that can be tailored to the unique suppliers, designs, packaging, and labels of its customers.

According to a statement released by Governor Ralph S. Northam, “Empire Bakery is a valuable employer that has flourished in Virginia for more than 20 years, achieving tremendous growth and the sweet taste of success. We are proud to have a partner like Empire Bakery in Franklin County and I commend the company’s decision to expand and reinvest in Southside Virginia.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Franklin County, the Town of Rocky Mount, the Roanoke Regional Partnership, and the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Northam approved a $225,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Franklin County with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission approved $140,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds for the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
