Leading gluten free granola manufacturer Bakery On Main experienced a fire on June 1 at approximately 9:30 am in its granola and granola bar manufacturing plant in East Hartford, CT.   The fire started due to a faulty exhaust fan located in an attic area.

The building’s sprinkler system contained the fire and the East Hartford fire department responded with exceptional speed and professionalism to put out the fire.  The Bakery On Main team escaped without injury.

There was some damage to the building and electrical equipment, and while it is too early to estimate the time required to repair the damage, the company expects there will be enough stock left untouched by the fire in addition to  distributor stock to keep store shelves full until production can begin again.
 
Bakery On Main Founder and President Michael Smulders says that Bakery On Main hopes to be back in business very soon.  “We all appreciate the numerous calls of support and offers of help,” said Smulders.  “We truly have the best customers and friends.”
