The founder of BMF always had “flour on his hands”. That’s because Cloyd Barnes, Sr. took a great deal of interest in the baking industry and gained a great deal of knowledge over the years about the equipment that commercial bakers used– so much so that he started his own company, CK Bakery Machinery International in 1982!
Since 1932 Rhodes Bakery Equipment Co., Inc. has manufactured machinery for the baking industry. Our founder H.C. Rhodes, invented, patented and sold some of the first automatic equipment used by bakers. Now the third and fourth generation is continuing to produce high quality cookie machinery. The trademark Kook-E-King ® cookie depositor has become world famous for high speed, wire-cut cookie depositing. Kook-E-King is here to share the technology with cookie bakers world wide!
