Hostess Brands Inc. — a Charlotte Avenue store for which ranks among West Nashville’s more well-recognized businesses — is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
The Nashville store will not be affected, according to media reports.
Company officials are citing troubles with pension and medical benefits obligations and increased competition.
Hostess Brands is the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, among other baked products.
Located at 4111 Charlotte Ave., the Nashville Hostess serves as a wholesale bakery.
Hostess Brands is based in Irving, Texas, and operates in 49 states, with 36 regional bakeries including the Wonder bakery at 400 Monroe Ave. in Memphis and a Knoxville plant.
