“We are going to bring back the bumpy cake. We’re going to bring back the Bill Knapp’s chocolate cake . We’re gonna bring back a complete line of brownies and we’re going to bring back the number one signature product , which is the Long John coffee cake among biscuits and other fine products,” he said.

McColgan said that they’ve already brought back about 45 employees and hope to bring back more as the business grows.
