NAMPA, IDAHO — Franz Family Bakery, one of the largest family-owned baking companies in the United States, is adding some space at its location in Nampa.

Meanwhile, the additional shipping and warehouse space is expected to increase efficiency at the location by doubling the number of trucks that can load the bakery’s products, Mr. Robinson said.
