were very pleased to work with Just Desserts, and our oven capabilities
are well-suited to the diverse baking needs of the growing bakery.”

process, and very engaged during our installation and start-up.”

most recent investments made by Just Desserts. Mendes adds, “We are
excited about these growth investments in support of our commitment to
customers and consumers.” Last year, Just Desserts opened a new 75,000
