Sweetwater buys Aunt Millie’s downtown properties

October 8, 2018

Aunt Millie’s downtown properties are being sold to Sweetwater, John Popp, the company president of Perfection Bakeries announced today. 

The properties, located at 350 Pearl St., currently houses Aunt Millie’s corporate office and approximately 125 jobs that will remain in the building, a statement said. 

Aunt Millie’s corporation will utilize a leaseback of the space to accommodate those needs, it said. 

Sweetwater founder and President Chuck Surack said he purchased the building because of its proximity to The Landing, riverfront development - including the Sweetwater Stage - and other ventures central to Fort Wayne’s future. 

The building’s iconic Sunbeam sign will remain atop the building.
