From humble beginnings 40+ years ago in a small bakery near Boston to a 30,000-sq.-ft. plant today in Chelsea, Mass., outfitted with four production lines, Golden Cannoli Shells Inc. now generates more than 100,000 cannoli shells each day. The more spacious plant is also allowing the bakery to significantly increase its capacity.
Things at Golden Cannoli Shells’ new location in Chelsea, Mass., are really buzzing. Still installing equipment and unpacking as of this writing, the company relocated in late September. “Basically, we were in the former plant from the start,” explains Valerie Bono, owner and vice president. The former facility in Somerville, Mass., was only 12,000 sq. ft., or about half the size. Demand prompted the bakery to relocate to a larger space.
