WHO WE ARE

At Hometown Food Company we don’t only hold some of America’s most beloved baking brands, we’re inspired by them. We believe that like a favorite recipe, great things come from the correct ingredients, years of expertise and plenty of care. Because together, they can grow into something beyond the sum of their parts. As any good baker knows, when you combine the right ingredients and add a little heat, they Rise Together.
