Yes, I remember that large sign on the Kennedy Expressway, Actually erected in 1967. Plus I remember the Ma Brown sign which was a few yards south, Probably erected in the mid-1960's. And the Lambrecht cheesecake sign on the east wall, Below the huge sign. Towards W. Cortland. Also installed in the 1960's.
My father was a union baker and worked for Burny Bros. Bakery on 4600 West Chicago Avenue in the 1960's and 1970's until the close of the company. Here is a website showing the plant and the products they made.
Burny Bakers was the wholesale division of the bakery located in Northlake on North Avenue.
Didn't the government step in and break up Beatrice Foods for being a monopoly? I remember my Dad talking about Beatrice Foods selling Burny Bros. Bakery around 1978-79. I know it went through some rough times around 1976-1978 until they closed. My Dad was there til the last days of Burney Bros. in 1979.
I could actually remember a Burny Bros bakery on W.Randolph, E of Wabash. I also remember when the logo was modernized in 1973 with more modernized printing & a heart sitting above the oval logo. I also recall, If I'm right. That Jewel food stores was a major supplier of their baking goods, More less of a division of Jewel..

Beatrice sold the Burny Bros operation to Entenemanns in '79.
I don't think they were forced to,I think it was just a business decision.
If I remember correctly, they shopped it to a couple of other companies before Entenemanns.
Entenemanns closed down most of the outlets but continued to bake in Northlake until 2004 or '05. the factory has since been torn down.
I remember back in the early seventies seeing a red Maserati parked in the lot out front. It was the first one I had ever seen and it was beautiful.
