Hugo's President Kristi Magnuson Nelson said in a news release that her company intends to retain all of J&B's management team and employees, making for a seamless transition.

Jeff and Bob Hensel, who started J&B Foods in 1982, said they expected the transition to be completed by the end of the year. The current 53,000-square-foot location opened in 2009.
