LIVONIA, Mich. -

About Awrey's

Awrey Bakeries began in Detroit as a family business and moved to a production facility in Livonia in the 1970s.

The company, known for its windmill logo, fell on hard times and filed for bankruptcy protection in 2005.  An investment group purchased it in bankruptcy, but in recent years demanded concessions from unionized workers to keep the company going.
