New Horizons Baking Co. acquired Graffiti Foods, LLC, a supplier of customized liquid blend solutions for intermediate and regional chain restaurants based in Columbus, Ohio. The acquisition closed Dec. 29, 2023. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. 

Family-owned Graffiti Foods was run by Phil and Susan Griesinger for 16 years. The company produces soups, sauces, sides, gravies, appetizers, dips, fruit toppings and other ingredients. This acquisition completes NHB’s custom ingredient portfolio and moves the baking company toward its strategic plan of providing a full array of food, beverage and nutritional solutions to its customers.

In May 2021, NHB acquired Coalescence, a manufacturer of custom dry seasoning blends and flavors for food and beverage. With this acquisition, Coalescence NHB, LLC, and Graffiti Foods will be integrated into one company, New Horizons Food Solutions, LLC.   

With Coalescence and Graffiti Foods based in Columbus, NHB plans to bring both businesses into one facility by mid-2024. 

The New Horizons bakeries supply English muffins and soft rolls for major quick-service.
