It’s been a tough year for the out-of-home bakery market which was badly hit by the pandemic. There were job losses, store closures and lost revenue for many but there were a few bright spots, including the rise of online sales and delivery.

This feature will accompany a ranking of the top 75 companies that sell baked goods as a primary element of their food offering in a non-supermarket retail, food-to-go or eat-in format.
