Through the '60s and '70s the bakery's focus was manufacturing its quality fresh products to supply California military and restaurants. In the 1980s, the company expanded to co-packing, delivering quality danish and donuts to large chain grocery stores and institutions. Growth of the opera- tion continued through the '90s and into 2000s with the addition of frozen product lines. In the fall of 2004, con- struction of a new 135,000 square foot plant was completed. The new facility has added more capacity and new prod- uct lines, allowing us to remain flexible and meet our current and future cus- tomer's needs. Mary Ann's Baking Company to this day is still family owned and operated. Over 50 years in the making, Mary Ann's Baking honors our traditions of the past and promise of the future. Two things that cross both dimensions are our people and our food. Were passionate people because we believe when you love what you do, great results follow. Exceptional food is why were in busi- ness. Our company values are formulat- ed for success, enabling us to meet our missions. One of our missions is con- tinuous improvement; this means remaining one step ahead so our cus- tomers experience the best the industry has to offer. Another is consistency, which is an undervalued asset in today's business world, and we strive to keep things humming so the inevitable fire drill is no longer neces- sary. We put people first and act with integrity and these are the foundation- al beliefs that make us who we are today and will ensure our success mov- ing forward.

COLUMBUS FOODS BRINGS A BIT OF ITALY IN THEIR CHARCUTERIE When the founders of Columbus Foods arrived from Italy in 1917, they brought a bit of Italy with their authentic Italian recipes and a mastery of the salame-mak- ing practice, crafting and selling Old World artisan salame in San Francisco, Calif., long before "artisan" was a well- known term. Since then, Columbus Foods has stayed true to the principles that were fun- damental to its founders – start with the finest ingredients, take extra time and keep it wholesome.
