Ground Breaking Ceremony for Metropolitan Baking Co in Hamtramck

On Tuesday, October 17, we witnessed an exciting and historic moment as we celebrated the ground breaking ceremony for Metropolitan Baking Co’s expansion project in Hamtramck. At Roncelli, we take pride in our longstanding tradition of building excellence. It’s not just about building structures, it’s about building legacies and helping the community. So, when we were chosen as the general contractor for the expansion project of Metropolitan Baking Co. we couldn’t have been more thrilled.

Metropolitan Baking Co: A Legacy of Quality and Tradition

Metropolitan Baking Co’s story is one of resilience and dedication. Established in 1945, this family-owned business has been a staple in Hamtramck for nearly eight decades. Specializing in high-quality bread products, their journey is a testament to the value of hard work and commitment to producing the finest baked goods. Now in its third generation of leadership, the company continues to preserve its tradition of excellence while embarking on an exciting new chapter of expansion.

Roncelli: Legacy of Building Excellence

Roncelli, a family-owned business with a rich history in Michigan’s construction industry, shares a similar commitment to excellence and tradition. Our involvement as the general contractor for Metropolitan Baking Co’s expansion project reflects our dedication to helping businesses grow and thrive in our community.

The Expansion Project

As announced during the ground breaking ceremony the project will add an additional 30,000 square feet of space. The project will bring the family-run bakery on Lumpkin Street to a total of 140,000 square feet and employ an additional 25 people. The expansion will not only enhance Metropolitan Baking Co’s production capabilities by 30-40% but also contribute to the economic development of the community.
