COMMUNITY IMPACT

Sweet Street Desserts, which has more than 700 employees and is headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, is considered the premier gourmet dessert manufacturer in the world, providing a wide range of dessert products in more than 60 countries globally. Many of the world’s leading foodservice establishments — including well-known hotels, restaurants, cafes and upscale supermarkets — serve Sweet Street products as their own, and Sweet Street is consistently voted by food service professionals as the most innovative and one of the Top 10 food service suppliers in the United States. Sweet Street purchased a vacant bakery in Greenville County, formerly used by Sara Lee Corporation until its closure in 2009. They are renovating the 120,049 sq. ft. building and equipping it to produce dessert and pasta products. The project will revitalize the long-dormant facility with new machinery and equipment, transforming it into a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant capable of handling multiple baking processes. At the time the facility closed, most of Sara Lee’s 200 employees either lost their jobs or were forced to relocate. Sweet Street Desserts brought employment opportunities back to this LIC. Of note, Sweet Street hired the former Sara Lee plant manager as its plant manager, and efforts are underway to locate additional Sara Lee employees.
