H&S Bakery begins Fells Point expansion
Baltimore’s H&S Bakery, a familyowned business best known for supplying McDonald’s with its hamburger rolls, said Wednesday it has begun to expand its Fells Point location. The $15 million project at 623 S. Caroline St., to be completed by the end of the year, is designed to help streamline distribution operations, the firm said in a statement. The project will add about 25,000 square feet to H&S’s west building and includes new equipment and other upgrades. It received preliminary city approval for the project last year. The addition will span a city block, and was designed by Morris & Ritchie Associates to match the character of the surrounding historic neighborhood, the firm said. The Paterakis family’s five Baltimore-area bakeries employ about 1,500 workers, including more than 300 based in Fells Point.
