Twinkies snack cakes may be back on store shelves next month, but the bakery jobs that left St. Louis when Hostess closed up shop here aren't coming back.
Metropoulos & Company, and Apollo Global Management bought Hostess cakes earlier this year for $410 million. Both companies are known for buying troubled brands and then selling them for a profit.
Since the sale, Hostess headquarters have been moved from Texas to Kansas City, Missouri and production has been consolidated from 11 bakery plants to four. The plant in St. Louis was eliminated.
