The development of J.S.B Industries as a one-stop baking manufacturing company is an amazing success story – built on decades of hard work, integrity and a “customer first mentality”, the enduring corporate philosophy of Jack Anderson, company president, founder, and chief executive officer.
Starting out as a food commissary, Muffin Town was founded in 1978, with a vision to create a bakery commissary that would supply foodservice companies (schools, healthcare) with a consistent, quality baked product. The quality of the products was the best mode of advertising. “Business found us. People loved what we make,” said Mr. Anderson. “Selling was easy.”
Soon after opening its doors, small neighborhood bakeries were closing as customers started to look to supermarkets for their favorite baked goods. By offering frozen baked goods that always maintained peak freshness, Muffin Town sales continued to increase. In the year, 2000, J.S.B. established a 100,000 square foot facility in Chelsea, Mass. Aesops Bagels was purchased in 2001.
The addition of new brand names prompted the corporate name change from Muffin Town to J.S.B. Industries, which has evolved into a national baking manufacturing company, “America’s Premium Value Bakery”. The exceptional family of respected brands now includes Muffin Town, SunWise Peanut Free Sandwiches, Aesops Bagels, Smart Choice Whole Grain baked goods, Madeline’s Gourmet Cookies and Madeline’s Pantry Online Bakery.
In 2006 J.S.B. Industries added a new division to its family – Madeline’s Cookies. This company was created in response to our customer’s requests and a desire for a frozen, ready-to-bake gourmet cookie dough that tasted delicious and was cost efficient.
