HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

A Henderson bakery that closed after Hostess went under because of bankruptcy has a new owner.

Georgia-based Flower Foods announced Monday they closed on a deal to acquire 20 Hostess bakeries across the country, including one located in southern Nevada.

The company, which touts itself as the second-largest baker in the U.S., reported the total purchase price at $355 million. A bankruptcy court approved the sale in March following an initial bid to purchase Hostess' assets.

Flower Foods also announced the purchase of Hostess brands including Wonder, Merita, Home Pride, Butternut and Nature's Pride, as well as 36 depots belonging the Hostess' Old HB, Inc.

"These assets fit very well with our strategy to grow our fresh baked foods through market expansion and acquisitions," said Allen L. Shiver, Flower Foods president and chief executive officer.

A spokesperson for Flower Foods did not say when the company will move into the Henderson facility.
