Slideshow: Flowers Foods revives Wonder Bread plant
Flowers products were already in the market, but it was a far reach from our Batesville, Ark.; Atlanta; Bardstown, Ky.; and Denton, Texas, bakeries that were supplying goods here,” Mr. Frankum said.
This involved “burning a lot of fuel and driving a lot of miles,” according to Mr. Benton.
“Lenexa gives us the ability to get the pans close to the shoppers, in other words, to be freshest to the market, and we are having a lot of success here,” Mr. Frankum said.
The bakery’s independent distributor partners currently supply grocery stores and supermarkets primarily, with limited service to private label and food service customers. The Lenexa site sits adjacent to I-35, which links the central region of the U.S. from north to southwest. Goods baked here move on tractor trailers and through a DSD network of independent distributors reaching west to Topeka and Wichita, Kas.; north to Lincoln and Omaha, Neb.; south to Springfield and Joplin, Mo.; and east to St. Louis and eastern Illinois.
“A lot of our market didn’t exist until we opened this bakery,” Mr. Frankum said.
Now, a year after startup, Flowers’ decision has paid off, especially the choice to maximize output of buns.
“Our distributor partners could not have served the market over the Fourth of July holiday without this bakery,” Mr. Frankum said. “And we’re able to supplement product to Denton to fill a temporary production gap there.”
Flowers sifted through the Hostess assets carefully, selling some locations and transferring equipment to its other bakeries as needed.
“We knew that Lenexa was one of the best plants Hostess had as far as equipment and location,” Mr. Benton said. “That’s why we chose it.”
Mr. Frankum’s management team at Flowers Baking Co. of Lenexa includes Todd Hamann, vice-president of sales; Amber Mangiaracino, director of manufacturing; Brian Rutecki, director of engineering; and Damien Butler, director of human resources.
With a total of 137,354 square feet under roof on 10.2 acres, the facility uses 50,190 square feet for processing, 13,776 square feet for packaging and 54,360 square feet for warehousing. The office and ancillary facilities cover 19,028 square feet. The bakery employs 160 company staff members and has 142 outsourced associates, including sanitation through Ambassador Services. Approximately 125 independent distributor partners sell fresh bakery foods to retail customers in the market every day.
Lenexa houses two processing lines, one for bread, the other for buns, and it has seven packaging lines, four for bread and three for buns. Packaging will soon expand with the addition of two bulk bun packers. Product styles comprise round-top bread, giant and king sandwich loaves, cluster and individual hamburger buns, and cluster hot dog buns. Bread is offered as single loaves and in 2-packs, while buns go out in 8-, 12- and 16-packs.
Four exterior silos, with more than 400,000 lbs total capacity, supply flour needs at Lenexa.
“The wheat is grown in Kansas, milled in Kansas and baked in Kansas," Mr. Frankum said. "We like it that this bakery’s supply chain is so close to the farmer’s field.”

Flowers’ original plan for reviving Lenexa was to invest $10 million in moderni... (Food Business News )Jun 10, 2016
Details announced for Ali funeral
Bob Gunnell, Ali family spokesman.
Starting at 9 a.m., the procession will travel northbound on Bardstown Road, westbound on the Watterson Expressway, and then north on I-65 to westbound I-64 (exiting the 9th Street ramp). It will travel west on Muhammad Ali Blvd to 34th Street, left on 34th Street to Broadway, including driving through Ali’s old west Louisville neighborhood. It will end at Cave Hill Cemetery, where he will be buried in a private, family-only ceremony, he said.
Gunnell did not provide details of the burial at Cave Hill, a historic national cemetery home to many prominent citizens. Imam Wasif Iqbal, of the Louisville Islamic Center, said Muslim burials are often simple and include washing of the body, wrapping it in a white cloth and burial without a casket with the deceased facing toward Mecca.
Also Monday, Mayor Greg Fischer announced a special city website devoted to Ali’s life and local events as well as an “I Am Ali Festival” to be held Wednesday at the in the lobby of the Kentucky Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Parklands planning and planting with 100-year focus
The Park stretches from Shelbyville Road near Valhalla Golf Club to Bardstown Road just south of Fern Creek. It offers meadow wildflowers, fishing lakes, broad vistas and green forests; one sheltered grove has 300-year-old beech trees. The not-even-completed park drew 1.4 million visitors in 2015 – with two million on the near horizon.
All well and good says the park’s designers, but given that success, and growing use, what’s the place going to look like – what’s it going to be like – 100 years down the road?
That thought became not just a worry for the Parklands planners, it became a goal: How do you plan now to create a meadow or forest for your great-great grandchildren – and then their great-great-grandchildren – all the while keeping the current trees and the visitors healthy and happy?
Horticulturist brings experience to Parklands
“Parks are about both people and nature,” explained Parklands CEO Dan Jones, “so a lot of times you get people-parks people and you get nature-parks people.
“We try to span that divide. A lot of people understand the people side of the project. I don’t think very many understand that we put the same amount of effort and planning into the nature side of the project.
“From the beginning we wanted our master plan to reflect that split. From the beginning, we started calling it “the 100 Year Vision.” We had some pretty interesting philosophical debates about that.
“And it’s important not to just be there in 100 years, but in 200 years."

The Parklands offers some unique challenges to that long-range plan. It’s composed of more than 80 parcels of land, a series of pieces Jones called a “mosaic of parcels,” many with different environmental, geological and horticultural features.
To process that dream, Jones had returned to his alma mater, Yale University, to earn a master degree in forestry. A defining moment in his long-range planning occurred while he was vi... (The Courier-Journal)Dec 4, 2015
