NORWOOD, OHIO – United Dairy Farmers (UDF), a Cincinnati-based convenience store chain known for its yeast square donuts, has recalibrated its baking packaging methods as well as distribution practices to ensure daily delivery of a Growing line of fresh baked goods at its 177 locations in southern Ohio, northern Kentucky and parts of Indiana.

“Freshness, innovation and convenience are at the heart of our United Dairy Farmers heritage,” said David Lindner, senior vice president of retail and co-owner of UDF. “Even with the pandemic slowing, we continued to invest and expand our capabilities in the bakery while continuing to develop our recipes to create the ideal fresh cookies and brownies for our stores and customers.”

Part of the company’s efforts was to increase the number of fleet drivers to handle daily deliveries to each of UDF’s locations in the tri-state region. The company also added a new oven system that has allowed for more consistent quality in the production of cookies and fudge brownies, which are used in the convenience store chain’s popular fudge brownie sundae.

With its renewed focus, UDF said it now offers 20 baked food items in its stores, including blueberry muffins, cinnamon buns, cookies (candies, chocolate chunks, Snickerdoodle, and macadamia nuts in white chocolate), donuts (frozen classics, jelly filled, bavarian cream, chocolate frosting, devil cake, kettle and Long John, plus the Buckeye donut in the fall), donut holes (frozen chocolate, frozen confetti and Ice Cream Sour Cream), Double Chocolate Chunk Brownie, Double Chocolate Muffins and Frozen Croissants.

“Customers seem to really love the new products, and we’ve made them easy to find with a dedicated display,” said Chuck Kronyak, bakery category manager at UDF. “Over the past three weeks, we’ve seen unit sales growth of over 16%, which we attribute to the addition of new varieties, daily delivery and some returns to more normal commuting habits. “
