C.H. Guenther & Son buys Pizza Blends

C.H. Guenther & Son Inc., San Antonio, acquires Pizza Blends Inc., a maker of frozen and dry-mix pizza crusts and other custom flour blended products.

“Pizza Blends is a great compliment to our existing foodservice business, which specializes in developing unique and high-quality products for many of the large restaurant chains and distributors,” reports Dale W. Tremblay, president and CEO of C.H. Guenther.

Bob Holmes started Pizza Blends in 1983 in Portland, Ore., and pioneered an all-in-one pizza mix. He continued to expand the business and built two additional dry-mix manufacturing facilities and one frozen dough plant.

“I am very pleased to see this great company be merged into C.H. Guenther & Son,” Holmes says. “They have an incredible legacy of more than 161 years of private ownership and a commitment to its employees, high-quality standards and exceptional service. I look forward to working with Dale and his team as they take the Pizza Blends business to the next level.”

C.H. Guenther & Son produces a variety of dry and frozen grain-based food products for both retail and the foodservice industry. With the acquisition of Pizza Blends, Guenther will have nine production facilities in the United States, as well as three operations in Europe.
