Sara Lee desserts have always stood for incredible flavour and superior value in the frozen food aisle and away from home markets.
Operating independently as Sara Lee Frozen Bakery for the first time in over 80 years, America’s favorite bakery is back. The name may have changed, but our commitment to quality is stronger than ever. What started as a small Chicago bakery, has transformed into an industry-leading maker of frozen bakery and desserts, committed to delivering quality and value. Sara Lee Frozen Bakery is headquartered with a state-of-the-art Research & Development facility in the Chicago suburb of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, and operates bakeries in Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina and Washington.
Sara Lee Frozen Bakery is proud to take these iconic brands into a new era and to continue the evolution that transformed one small Chicago bakery into an American institution. Using carefully sourced ingredients and time-honoured recipes, the company is committed to making life’s moments a little sweeter, putting its customers first and discovering new ways to make everyone’s favourite foods even better.

Working for Sara Lee
Sara Lee Frozen Bakery became a stand-alone company in 2018 when it was purchased by Kohlberg and Company (private equity) from Tyson Foods. We have the feel of a start-up in many ways, though we are an established brand with a strong customer and consumer base. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, continually seek process improvements and a strong sense of customer service, then this is the right type of environment for you.
Our vision is to be the world’s most beloved bakery by creating irresistible foods, growing with our customers, and delivering value for all. We believe that each of us has unique points of difference and experience to offer. We will achieve success through collaboration and innovation in an environment where employees feel empowered to execute with speed.
