Twinkies are back, but most jobs are not

15 Jul, 2013

According to an analyst only about 20% to 25% of the 18,500 jobs previously at Hostess will end up returning when all the brands are up and running again. This is partically a result of replacing laborers by  new investments in equipment and machinery to replace laborers.

A spokeswoman for Apollo-Metropoulos venture, said the company plans to use 1,800 workers to produce a full line of Hostess snacks, including Twinkies. The old Hostess had roughly 2,500 workers producing snacks. The spokesperson cautioned that it’s “nearly impossible” to compare the two, because the new company did not buy rights to all of the brands that the old Hostess produced.
