Knoxville Bankruptcy Lawyers, Clark & Washington, Discuss Hostess' Money Troubles

The Knoxville bankruptcy attorneys, Clark & Washington, would like to discuss Hostess' recent decision to file for bankruptcy. The American giant that produced famous products like Twinkies and Ho-Hos is in the process of liquidating its assets.

    NORCROSS, GA, March 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The bankruptcy attorneys in Knoxville, Clark & Washington, would like to turn their attention towards Hostess' recent decision to file for bankruptcy. Not many people would have thought that the company that produced the famous treat Twinkies would have gone under, but the Knoxville bankruptcy attorneys note that anything can happen in this economy. Suffering from poor sales, the business has made the move to auction off its brands. According to the law firm, Hostess has been successful in attempts to auction off its bread brands, which has been a back and forth struggle between companies like Flowers Foods, Inc. However, the fate of the Twinkie and Ho-Ho product line has yet to be determined, as Hostess will return to the auction arena later this month. The Knoxville bankruptcy attorneys note that Hostess originally did not intend to liquidate its assets; initially it sought to restructure its operations in hopes for a potential comeback. The union that represented the company's baking employees proved to be too strong of a force, however, and after the two parties failed to reach a financial agreement, Hostess sought liquidation as its fallback plan.
