Hostess Will Open Indianapolis Plant Next Week

Hostess Brands LLC should have its Indianapolis plant in full production by the end of next week according to company officials.

In exchange for a $500,000 tax abatement the company will install $10 million in new equipment and hire 145 local workers making an average wage of $16.82 an hour within the next two years. Hostess, now owned by private-equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropolis & Co., has hired back some of the people who lost their jobs when its predecessor opted to declare bankruptcy last year.

The Shadeland Avenue plant is making muffins and Donettes, which are among the half-dozen products included in Hostess Brands' initial launch but Twinkies will be made elsewhere.
