North Andover, MA Dacon Corp. has begun the design and construction of a 46,900 s/f facility for Bake’n Joy Food’s headquarters. This project entails the renovation of an existing 38,000 s/f, 1970’s industrial facility for production along with north and south side additions for baking and offices. The construction is in response to supporting operational efficiencies and continued product expansion to meet consumer demand.
Bake’n Joy Foods is a 80-year-old bakery products firm that supplies frozen ready-to-bake batters, baked items and dry mixes to retailers and food service entities.
This project includes a bakery, packaging and freezer areas to house equipment that ensures production keeping up with demand. The design rationale centers on operational efficiencies to support their continuous sales growth. With process engineering critical to operational efficiency, water and grease systems as well as a state-of-the-art spiral freezer which instantly preserves food are incorporated. “Bake’n Joy is an example of American ingenuity identifying trends before demand begins. With consumer demand for diversified products, their growth is inevitable,” said Kevin Quinn, Dacon’s CEO.
