The cuts will affect the entire Austin workforce, located at 6301 E. Stassney Lane, according to a letter sent to the Texas Workforce Commission.
The bakery was closed on March 6th, and the workforce was laid off that day as well. The bakery will not reopen.

It is the maker of McDonald's hamburger buns, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, and other products, including artisan breads, doughtnuts, pastries, pizza, and flatbreads.
The company cut costs in 2018 and 2019, as it dealt with heavy debt and overexpansion.
