Holsum Bakery is the market-share leader in Arizona for commercially-baked baked bread and bun products. Fresh Holsum Bakery products are distributed by over 250 independent distributors to retail grocers, convenience stores, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, military bases, fast food establishments, and trading posts through-out the Southwest on a daily basis.
As the marketplace has continued to change, and as our tastes and nutritional needs have also continued to change, so have Holsum's associates had to constantly change in order to continue to be relevant in today's food industry. One of the best examples of these changes can be seen in any of Holsum's bakeries, where you will see state-of-the-art equipment positioned within facilities that are immaculately clean and well-organized. In addition to all of the extremely-modern equipment, you will also find that Holsum's associates are among the best-trained in the baking industry, since every year, every Holsum associate receives a minimum of 40 hours of re-training on subjects that help each individual continue to add value to the process in which he or she works.
Holsum associates bake numerous types of products in several bakeries in the Valley of the Sun. The bakery in Phoenix was built by Del Webb (former owner of the New York Yankees) in 1946, right after World War II. Holsum's associates in this bakery produce a wide variety of breads and buns on several different production lines. In the Tempe bakery, Holsum's associates produce only buns, rolls, and certain French-type products. Finally, Holsum's associates at the Tolleson bakery produce both bread and buns for fresh distribution to numerous depots and destinations through-out the Southwest on a daily basis.
Moving into the future, the challenge for every Holsum associate will be to continue to learn new ways of doing the job that Holsum's customers expect every day: produce and deliver highest quality baked goods, on time, and at the right price. That-in turn-enables our customer's satisfaction. – less–ZoomInfo
