Doran Scales in Batavia was recently chosen by the producers of the new "Buddy's Bakery Rescue" television series for their stainless steel, digital bakery scales.

In this new series by TLC, Buddy Valastro, famous baker and star of the popular "Cake Boss" TV show, evaluate struggling bakeries and turn them around helping them to become profitable and successful.

The episode featuring several of Doran's digital bakery scales takes place at Bing's Bakery in Newark, Delaware. As part of the improvement in Bing's Bakery production area, the bakery's existing mechanical scale was replaced with a new digital scale from Doran. The episode is scheduled to air Tuesday, July 1, on TLC.

"We were excited to hear that the producers specifically wanted our scales to be used to help improve the performance of this family-owned bakery", said Mark Podl. "As CEO and owner of a second-generation, family-owned business myself, I know some of the unique challenges that the current owners of Bing's Bakery were facing. I'm glad we could help them out as we have so many other bakeries each year."

"Doran developed our digital bakery scale over 20 years ago to replace the type of mechanical scale that Bing's Bakery was using," added Mr. Podl. "Bakers that make the switch find that product consistency is improved and production time is reduced -- resulting in lower costs and higher profits. That relationship with the baking industry that was started many years ago by my father is still going strong today. We are sponsors of The French Pastry School in Chicago, members of several baking trade organizations, and participate in baking industry trade shows and events."
