Bisousweet Confections Expands Leominster, Massachusetts, Operations

Bisousweet Confections plans to renovate and buy equipment for its new 20,000-square-foot facility in Leominster, Massachusetts. The project is expected to create 50 jobs over the next five years.

The project is being supported by a $1,250,000 loan provided by MassDevelopment.

“We were thrilled to work on our expansion project with MassDevelopment,” said Bisousweet Confections Founder and CEO Karen Collins. “They were the perfect fit for our company and were supportive, encouraging, and helpful throughout the entire process, from the beginning of the application procedure, meeting with us during the build-out phase, and finally visiting us once we relocated to see our company manufacturing. MassDevelopment was pivotal in our expansion, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”

Bisousweet's products are distributed across the country and are available at specialty retailers and grocery stores such as Whole Foods, Big Y, The Fresh Market, Wegmans, Roche Brothers, Market Basket, and Shaw's/Star Market.

“Bisousweet’s baked goods have become popular products in grocery stores across the nation, and we are pleased that our flexible financing was able to help this certified woman-owned business move into a larger building in Leominster and create jobs,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Dan Rivera. “MassDevelopment is pleased to work with wholesalers and manufacturers looking to expand operations or upgrade facilities here in Massachusetts.”
