Commercial baker Northeast Foods has completed an expansion of its Edison factory, allowing the company to considerably increase freezer capacity.

The expansion includes a new 7,500-square-foot blast freezer capable of transitioning buns from 100 degrees to 20 degrees in under eight hours.

The additional space is required by McDonald’s, one of Northeast Foods’ primary clients, as McDonald’s now requires all of its buns to be frozen for product integrity and freshness. Northeast Foods’ Automatic Rolls of New Jersey has been baking buns for McDonald’s since the 1970s.

The added freezer space will decrease the number of standing diesel refrigerated trucks outside of the Edison factory, therefore minimizing the noise to the nearby community.

The expansion was executed by Charlotte-based design firm A M King.
