Bobo’s Establishes Loveland, Colorado, Production Complex

Bobo’s, the Colorado-based snack brand, has invested $10 million to establish a wind-powered production operation in Loveland, Colorado.

The 123,000-square-foot facility, located at 4501 Viking Way, will increase the production of bars, bites and toaster pastries by more than 3x while at the same time, reducing the company’s carbon footprint. Bobo's seeks to achieve carbon neutrality by December 2022. The new location consolidates three previous facilities.

"This day is more than two years in the making," said TJ McIntyre, CEO of Bobo's. "We're thrilled to officially open our incredible new 'super bakery' today, and to continue to support the growing, nationwide consumer demand for Bobo's products. We've brought our entire operation, including production and packaging, under one extremely efficient, wind-powered roof to produce a product true and authentic to Beryl's original vision that began years ago in her own kitchen. Despite Bobo's tremendous success and growth over the last 19 and a half years, we feel like we are just getting started."

In addition to being powered entirely by wind, the Bakery has also achieved more than 95% diversion of its solid waste from the landfill through a comprehensive waste management program, according to company officials.

"Bobo's is a leader in Colorado's natural products community," noted Jack Hill, Existing Industry Manager, City of Loveland. "We're proud their delicious treats will now be made with love in Loveland at their new facility. This a huge win for Loveland's healthy food industry cluster and a trend we hope to continue for years to come."

The city’s economic development office said that the benefit to the city would be the additional employees who would earn an average of $45,000 a year and sales taxes on purchases that up to 125 new employees would make in the city. Sales taxes on equipment were deferred as part of the incentive package.
