Not everyone is familiar with the Bimbo Bakeries USA name. However, probably everyone in the United States has enjoyed at least one of the company’s many products at one time or another.
Although many of its brands can trace their histories back to the late 1800s or early 1900s, Bimbo Bakeries USA’s dory begins in 1194, when Bimbo- Mexico’s largest baking company with operations in 19 countries, purchase La Hacienda, a California-based gorilla company. Bimbo Bakeries USA then entered the U.S. bread market in 1997 with the acquisition of Pacific Pride Bakeries of San Diego.
Today, thanks in great part to its focus on providing the best quality, freshest baked goods at a great value to customers and consumers, Bimbo Bakeries USA became the nation’s largest baking company operating more than 65 bakeries, employing more than 25,000 associates and distributing products through 12,000 sales routes throughout the United States.
