Almost a month has gone by without a Home Pride Update post. I decided that it was time for another update.
I have received a lot of comments about how Home Pride has returned to the shelves, but there are still a lot of people who are looking for it where they live.
Here is a map from Flowers Foods website that shows their Market Territory. They state on the website that “Home Pride is available in cities and towns within Flowers Foods’ fresh delivery territory where it was sold previously.”
If you live just outside their current territory, there is a chance that you will see Home Pride return sooner than later. The map has been filling in just a bit since the introduction of the Hostess brands.
Flowers Foods has expanded their territory in Nevada and Ohio and have also added the Denver and Kansas City markets to their territory.
I snipped the above map from the September 2013 Investor Fact Sheet. You can see that there is large potential for market expansion.
In a press release from October 9, Flowers Foods also stated that by the end of the year they will be restarting production at the former Hostess bakery in Henderson, NV. The bakery will serve parts of Nevada and California.
Flowers Foods also has a new Honey Oat bread that recently showed up at my grocery store. One of my sources recommended that I give it a try.
It is a good bread, but not an all-round bread. It is good for a nice ham and swiss or turkey and cheddar sandwich, but not for your everyday toast or PBJ.
Flowers Foods has their Q3 webcast coming up this week, so maybe their will be more news about their future market expansion plans.
In just two weeks it will be one year since I posted Not My Bread!! when Hostess declared bankruptcy. Almost all the former Hostess products have returned to the shelves now.
One of my favorite Hostess snack cakes was Zingers, but I haven’t seen them yet. They started returning to the shelves in early October, so I might have to go looking for them tomorrow.
OK, enough wandering. I will get this posted.
