Hostess Brands is the second largest U.S. provider of sweet baked goods, under the Hostess and Dolly Madison group of brands, including Twinkies, CupCakes, Ding Dongs, HoHos, Donettes, and Zingers. In 2018, Hostess expanded its breakfast offerings with the purchase of Aryzta's breakfast assets (the Cloverhill business), including a branded business and private-label partnerships. Although the company's roots stem from the 1919 launch of the Hostess CupCake, it filed for bankruptcy in 2012. Investors purchased the brands and restarted production in 2013, followed by a 2016 IPO. Most products are sold in the U.S. although third parties distribute some product to Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
