Soft pretzel sales to the food service market increased 14% to $118,014,000 for the year aided by increased sales to restaurant chains, warehouse club stores and throughout our customer base. Increased sales to one customer accounted for approximately 25% of the pretzel sales increase. Excluding Kim & Scott s sales, food service soft pretzel sales increased 12% for the year. Frozen juice bar and ices sales increased $4,073,000 or 8%, to $53,813,000 for the year primarily as the result of higher sales to warehouse club stores and throughout our customer base. Increased sales to one customer accounted for about 85% of the frozen juices and ices sales increase.

Operating income in our Food Service segment increased from $46,171,000 in 2011 to $49,770,000 in 2012 primarily as a result of increased sales volume and price increases which offset higher ingredient and packaging cost increases of about $9 million and the negative impact of the sharp decline in funnel cake sales.

Operating income in our Retail Supermarkets segment increased from $11,830,000 in 2011 to $13,316,000 in 2012 primarily due to operating income generated by handheld sales and lower coupon expense.

Sales to food service customers increased $25,756,000 or 6%, to $463,562,000 in fiscal 2011. Excluding sales from the acquisition of California Churros and handheld sales, food service sales increased 2% for the year. Soft pretzel sales to the food service market increased 3% to $103,943,000 for the year aided by increased sales to restaurant chains in the fourth quarter.

Churro sales to food service customers increased 31% to $41,583,000 in 2011. Without sales from California Churros, churro sales for the year would have been up about 2%. Sales of bakery products, excluding biscuit and dumpling sales and fruit and fig bar sales, increased $9,190,000, or 5%, for the year due primarily to increased sales to private label customers and to school food service. Biscuit and dumpling sales increased 4% to $34,774,000. Sales of fig and fruit bars decreased 11% to $28,363,000 due primarily to lower sales across our customer base resulting from decreased demand.

Operating income in our Food Service segment decreased from $50,220,000 in 2010 to $46,171,000 in 2011 primarily as a result of higher ingredients and packaging costs of about $16 million and increased freight and distribution costs caused by higher freight rates and the integration of the handhelds business, which were partially offset by the benefit of higher pricing.
