Hometown Food Company Taps ODW Logistics to Provide Supply Chain Services for Major Baking Brands

Hometown Food Company holds some of America’s most beloved baking brands including Pillsbury™, Hungry Jack®, Martha White®, White Lily® Flour, Jim Dandy®, Funfetti®, SunSpire®, and Arrowhead Mills®. Hometown Foods is part of the Brynwood Partners VIII L.P. portfolio.

ODW will provide supply chain services at Hometown Food Company state-of-the-art distribution facilities located in: Columbus, Ohio; Toledo, Ohio; McDonough, Georgia; and Jackson, Tennessee. These facilities are strategically located with convenient highway access to serve major population centers.

“We are delighted that Hometown Food Company has entrusted us with the management and operation of a significant part of their critical food chain distribution network,” said ODW CEO John Ness. “We look forward to providing scalable and reliable supply chain services that will enhance customer satisfaction with on-time and exception-free shipments.”

Under its long-term agreement with Hometown Food Company, ODW will provide distribution center management and operations, seamless connectivity between manufacturing nodes via EDI, and greater inventory visibility—all supported by a robust warehouse management system.

Distribution facilities being managed by ODW for Hometown Food Company total about 1 million square feet, serve nearly 1,000 destinations, and generate the equivalent of some 24,000 truckload shipments annually. ODW will offer employment to the existing teams at each location.

“Hometown Food Company partnered with ODW Logistics in the fall of 2020 to operate our largest distribution center in Columbus, Ohio. We look forward to scaling our operations and enhancing our customer service level,” said Dan Anglemyer, COO Hometown Food Company.

Based on ODW’s high level of performance as our 3PL partner, we are excited to expand our partnership with them into three new markets—Toledo, Ohio; Jackson, Tennessee; and McDonough, Georgia.
