Le Chef Bakery: City of Montebello
$7,200,000 tax-exempt industrial development bonds and $400,000 Company funds for the acquisition of land, building, and equipment.
Established in 1983, Le Chef was originally a wholesale manufacturing company and retail chain of pastry and sandwich shops. In 1990, the company concentrated on its core wholesale baking business. With over 100 employees, Le Chef serves the hotel, hospitality, catering and food service industries in California, Hawaii, and Nevada. The company purchased an existing building to accommodate growth at its manufacturing base in Montebello. The expansion will create over 100 additional jobs in a high unemployment area.
