FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- John F. Popp, President of Perfection Bakeries, Inc., DBA Aunt Millie’s Bakeries, announced Monday that the company’s downtown properties are being sold to Sweetwater Sound, Inc.

Aunt Millie’s corporate offices and approximately 125 jobs will remain at the current facility at 350 Pearl St., through a leaseback of space to accommodate those needs.

Aunt Millie’s Fort Wayne Bakery closed in April, but the iconic Sunbeam sign will remain on top of the building. The properties include the former bakery and office building and approximately eight acres of other buildings and parking lots.

This purchase is unrelated to the $76.4 million dollar expansion project announced last week by Sweetwater at its US Highway 30 campus.
