Continental Mills Expands Production Capacity
Company purchases 175,000-sq-ft facility in Effingham, Ill.
Continental Mills, Inc., the maker of premium baking, breakfast and snack brands, including the beloved Krusteaz speed-scratch mixes and others, purchased a 175,000 square foot facility in Effingham, Ill., located adjacent to its existing manufacturing facility in Effingham. Acquired from Hodgson Mill, the facility will provide Continental Mills the capacity it needs to support continued growth.
The renovated facility is expected to be up and running sometime in 2021. In addition to providing increased capacity, the Effingham facility offers excellent proximity to Continental Mills' customers in the Eastern US, Midwest and Southeast.
Established in 1932, Continental Mills has found success with its flagship baking brand, Krusteaz, and other lines of speed-scratch mixes, which have increasing relevance for a new generation of families who are pressed for time but appreciate homemade foods and want to spend time together, whether at home or enjoying a meal in a restaurant. Continental Mills has also built a thriving foodservice business, providing its high-quality baking mixes to leading national restaurants and other accounts. Many of those accounts are serviced by Continental Mills' existing facility in Effingham.
