Koffee Kup had been delivering bread, buns, English muffins and doughnuts to more than 4,500 places in the Northeast before it closed, according to a private equity firm called American Industrial Acquisition Corporation, which had acquired Koffee Kup on April 1. The Flowers Foods announcement was made during a hearing in Chittenden Superior Court regarding the accrued paid time off that some employees lost when the bakery closed, according to the Brattleboro Reformer, which broke the story. A lawyer for the court-appointed receiver said Flowers Foods had purchased the company and would cover the money owed to employees, the Reformer said.
