CSM Bakery Solutions

CSM Bakery Solutions provides ingredients and services to bakeries across the world. Leapley transformed an existing two-story, multi-tenant office building into a cohesive single-tenant workplace to better support CSM’s regional operations. Leapley constructed open and closed offices, collaborative workspaces, kitchen and phone rooms, as well as a unique Customer Experience Center with full commercial kitchen where clients can experience the company’s culinary expertise, sample new products and discover new bakery solutions in a fun atmosphere. In honor of the brand, the headquarters features playful architectural details like rolling pin walls and bundt pan displays.
