We're on the cusp of the end of all traditional definitions of
what a retail baker - or a retailer of any kind - is. This leaves
bakery professionals thinking, how does all of this affect my
bakery business? The notion of mobile availability is increasingly
viable and has the potential to disrupt retail bakers that are
stationary and require customers to come to them.
The new business model is, How do I get in front of people
where they are, instead of attracting them to me? This is the
strength of mobility where food trucks, delivery services and
even meal kit services all benefit.
One standout to me relates to bakers' plans for capital spendCharles

ing. I've heard the buzz about semi-automating to compensate
for ongoing business challenges with the lack of employees. A
recent visit to St. Louis offered a glimpse of the future. Companion
Baking's new palletizing robot - affectionately called Bruce
Banner (aka The Incredible Hulk) by the staff - enables this
innovative bakery the ability to achieve a higher level of production
efficiency.
Companion's latest projects have allowed them to carve out a
unique niche as a mid-sized bread wholesaler with vast customization
capabilities. Through semi-automation and tools such
as Redzone, the baking company is able to produce around 150
different SKUs, five days a week, in an organized and efficient
manner - all in a floor space of 42,000 square feet.
Companion's operations manager Suman Shekar has made it
a goal to bring new technologies and production processes to
the bakery floor. She has found that semi-automation allows for
members of the team to have greater personal interaction with
the production process, all while making their lives easier.
