CEDAR GROVE, N.J. — Fairfield Gourmet Food Corp., the parent company of David’s Cookies, plans to acquire Foxtail Foods, known for its desserts, by the end of October.

The addition of Foxtail Foods product lines to David’s Cookies' existing products will further solidify Fairfield Gourmet Foods’ position as a one-stop-shop for bakery and pastry items in the convenience-store, foodservice, in-store bakery and frozen grocery segments, according to the company.

Foxtail Foods is an exclusive supplier to Perkins Restaurant & Bakery and Marie Callender’s Restaurant & Bakery and has also built a brand presence in foodservice. The company manufactures pies, pancake mixes, cookie dough, muffin batter and more.

"We are excited at this opportunity to expand David's Cookies production and distribution footprint to the Midwest," said Ari Margulies, president of David's Cookies. "Pies will make a great addition to our already well-rounded portfolio. We are especially excited to provide our customers with the ability to offer their patrons freshly baked pies in addition to freshly baked cookies.”

Foxtail Foods will continue to operate its 120,000-square-foot production facility in Fairfield, Ohio, where it is based, while also having access to David’s Cookies' production facilities in Cedar Grove, N.J., and Longwood, Fla. Fairfield Gourmet Food is also based in Fairfield.

Cedar Grove, N.J.-based David’s Cookies is a manufacturer of baked goods for the foodservice industry, including cookie dough, brownies, muffin batter, scones and cinnamon rolls. The company works extensively with c-store chains and in-store bakeries of major grocery chains nationwide.
