be raised by Flowers Food. The company should consider expanding into the northwest regions. Flowers Food is known for its reduced prices. The demand for ready-to-eat foods has increased.

This will reduce recalls, prevent waste, and increase shelf life. Flowers Food would have more opportunity to expand by creating its own line of baking mixes.
