Following last week’s announcement that it plans to reopen and begin hiring employees for its bakeries located in Columbus, Ga., and Emporia, Kan., Hostess Brands LLC announced Monday that it will open additional bakeries in Indianapolis, Ind., and Schiller Park, Ill.

Hostess is accepting applications for employment at both the Columbus and Emporia bakeries, while further information concerning the application process for the Indianapolis and Schiller Park facilities will be forthcoming, including at the web site jobs.hbnewco.com.

Hostess added in the news release: “Several articles appearing in the press last week suggested that Hostess is opposed to having labor unions in its bakeries and is specifically seeking non-union workers. This is not the case. Hostess respects union rights and will not discriminate against job applicants on the basis of union membership or union activities. Hostess intends to hire the most qualified applicants, regardless of their age, race, gender, or prior or current union affiliation. If a majority of the individuals hired at a Hostess facility are from the former company’s unionized workforce, the company will comply with any legal obligations it may have concerning bargaining with any union.”

Hostess added that it is “very excited about re-launching the iconic Hostess brands, and is very pleased that it will be hiring a substantial number of employees in several markets in the U.S. Hostess expects to begin hiring next month, with preliminary operations at some of the locations expected to commence in late May.”

Product is expected to be back on shelves by the end of July.

Hostess brands include Twinkies, Cup Cakes, HoHos, Ding Dongs, Mini Muffins, Donettes, Zingers and Suzy Q’s. The Company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and Kansas City, Mo.
