About Hostess Brands
Hostess Brands, LLC is a bakery company formed in June 2013. It owns several bakeries in the United States that produce snack cakes under the Hostess and Dolly Madison brand names. It is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri and is owned by HB Holdings, LLC, which is owned by Apollo Global Management and C. Dean Metropoulos and Company.
The company is separate from Old HB, which was formerly known as Hostess Brands, Inc. from 2009–2013. Old HB is currently under liquidation and sold its cake business to Apollo and Metropoulos creating the current Hostess Brands. The current Hostess Brands was formed as New HB Acquisition, LLC to acquire the cake business (Hostess and Dolly Madison brands) of Hostess Brands, Inc. Following the conclusion of the sale, Hostess Brands, Inc. became Old HB, Inc. and New HB Acquisition became Hostess Brands, LLC.
In June 2013, Hostess Brands retained the same public relations and advertising firms that had previously worked for Old HB. Bernstein-Rein, in Kansas City, MO will do Hostess Brands' advertising; LAK Public Relations, in New York, will handle its public relations for the return of Hostess products.
The company officially restarted production of snack cakes on June 6, 2013, with products officially going on sale on July 15, 2013.
Of the eleven bakeries operated by Old HB, Hostess Brands retained four, in Columbus, Georgia; Emporia, Kansas; Indianapolis, Indiana and Schiller Park, Illinois. The Schiller Park facility later closed, in October 2014.
In the summer of 2015, Hostess began producing Hostess brand bread and buns. The company, which previously owned Wonder Bread, never produced bread under its own brand name. The new Hostess bread items are carried at certain drug stores and dollar stores.
What to Expect When Interviewing
The interview procedure at Hostess Brands is straightforward. There is a common skills assessment
which covers topics including but not limited to reading, writing, speaking, and simple math. Applicants
must bring their resume with them to the interview. Some applicants go through a email screening prior to
progressing to an in person interview. Former employees have reported that it is important to show that
you are capable of coping with stressful situations, working in a fast paced setting, have a flexible schedule,
and communicating with others. Once through the interview process, all new hires are required to go through
a basic training.
