Parisian Sourdough Bakery Is Closed

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A well-known brand in the city’s signature sourdough bread industry has sold its last loaves.

The plant that produced Parisian sourdough bread was shut down Friday by the bankrupt Kansas City company that has owned it for the last decade. The Parisian label was a staple at Bay Area stores and restaurants for 149 years.

Interstate Bakeries shut down the bakery to cut costs, a company spokesman said.

A second San Francisco plant that produced Wonder bread and Hostess Twinkies also was closed Friday, although those baked goods will continue to be made elsewhere.
