By Tayler Reviere Verninas Dawn Food Products, Inc., a global bakery manufacturer and ingredients supplier from Michigan, announced it has acquired Lakeside Bakery Supplies, a wholesale bakery distributor. The deal between Dawn and Lakeside closed on May 11, and members of the Lakeside sales team and drivers will transfer to the Dawn family as part of the transition, according to a news release. The Lakeside-based bakery distributor has been owned and operated by the Brzezinski family for almost 70 years providing an array of bakery ingredients, including egg products, flours, cake mixes and bases, icings, sugars, oils, shortenings, fillings, nuts, spices and a variety of frozen products. The company also offers packaging, cake decorations and supplies and paper products. The global bakery manufacturer said it will continue to carry many of the same products that Lakeside currently provides. Dawn stated its willingness to work with customers on a one-on-one basis to find the best alternative to meet their needs, if the company is unable to provide certain products due to preexisting relationships. "When Carol and I made the decision to take this next step toward retirement, we wanted to find a partner we knew and trusted – someone we would feel good leaving our family's legacy to. We found that in Dawn and are extremely happy our customers will be able to transition to such a hardworking, dedicated partner," Mike Brzezinski, owner of Lakeside Bakery Supply, said in an announcement. Mike Brzezinski will be named the regional director of business development, southwest at Dawn Foods.
