Re: R.I.P. Twinkee?
Yep. With the brand names/trademarks sold off of the highest bidder to pay the secured creditors, and production almost certainly transferred to non-union bakeries. The Hostess name still has goodwill value.
A money-losing operation can't continue indefinitely, so a combination of revenue increase and/or cost cuts is required. The former was not possible in this case, so the latter was the only option. A hard lesson to learn for management and the unions. Short term pain for long term gain.
Logic requires one to deal with decisions that one's ego will not permit.
