A Healthy Workplace

McKee Foods Corporation is truly a healthy workplace with corporate wellness initiatives and an emphasis on family wide health.

"I’ve discovered that if I want more energy, sleep, and happiness, then exercising is a must do.  Working at the bakery has easily created this mindset because since 1968, the Lord blessed us with the ability to provide employees a gymnasium, swimming pool, ball field and hiking trails on 78.7 acres of beautiful rural land in Hixson, TN.  We called it Little Debbie Park and our employees have enjoyed the improved quality of life through the blessing of exercise.

Today, we have fitness rooms near our employee’s work areas and health, wellness and nutritional classes to strengthen our knowledge.  It is fun to make cookies and cakes, to enjoy them in moderation and have the encouragement and facilities to burn the calories consumed.  I love working here!”
