PAR: New Bakery Customer In Lawrence

Lawrence Yard Neighbor JSB Industries (d/b/a Muffintown Bakery) Builds Adjacent Rail Facility to Unload off New In-Yard Spur. Rail Key to Meet Growing Demand.

12 November, Lawrence MA – The Muffintown facility has neighbored PAR’s Lawrence Yard since acquiring the 309 Andover St. facility in 2010, but had never utilized rail service there. Rail deliveries of flour and sugar are expected to save the company tens of thousands of dollars per year and facilitate strategic growth, according to JSB VP-Operations, Scott Anderson {phone conversation with SA, 12.Nov.2019}.

Muffintown has neighbored PAR’s Lawrence Yard since 2010 , and is expanding its site footprint to meet a new dedicated PAR spur. The bakery will take as many as 100 cars per year of ingredients from Midwest mills {Google Earth; annotated by ANRP (c)ANRP}.

JSB expects to receive 7-8 cars per month of cake flour, whole wheat four, and sugar. Other ingredients may eventually also arrive by rail. The cars will be unloaded along a new 16,000 sq-ft facility, that can serve 3 cars at a time. PAR will drill the site on-call.

JSB produces several popular lines of packaged baked goods for sale on grocery shelves throughout the region and nationwide. The company was founded in Chelsea, Mass. in 1978. Both locations are production facilities.
