BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A nationally known producer of baked goods has purchased the assets of the Burlington-based Koffee Kup Bakery, which shut its doors earlier this year. On Monday, Flowers Foods, of Thomasville, Georgia, announced it had acquired the assets of Koffee Kup Bakery. In a news release the company said it had no immediate plans to reopen the Koffee Kup bakeries in Burlington and its subsidiaries, the Vermont Bread Company in Brattleboro, and Superior Bakery in North Grosvenor Dale, Conn. Koffee Kup closed abruptly in April due to financial troubles. Last week a Canadian company said it hoped to buy Koffee Kup.
