Hostess treats may be back in stores in July
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Good news for people who are missing their Twinkies, Ho Hos and Ding Dongs. The treats could be back on store shelves as soon as July.
The new owners of the bankrupt assets of Hostess Brands, Inc., will open bakeries in Georgia, Kansas, Illinois and Indiana.
Hostess shut down last year after a labor union dispute. The new owners plan to hire 1,500 workers who will likely all be nonunion.
The plant in Columbus, Ga., will be the first to reopen. Hiring is set to begin this summer.
