Roselyn Bakery was a major bakery chain that distributed products from an Indianapolis central baking facility from 1943 to 1999. The bakery chain, which consisted of approximately 40 locations in and around central Indiana, was known for its popular treats such as their Sweetheart Coffee Cake, Zebra Square Brownies and Blackout Cake.

In July 1999, the factory was abruptly shut down by the Indiana State Department of Health. The entire chain was dissolved soon after.

Despite the closure being heavily publicized by the local media, the popularity of Roselyn Bakeries' products did not wane. In 2000, the Kroger grocery chain sold a limited-edition cookbook of the bakery's recipes (now a sought-after item). Cookbooks can be purchased on the Roselyn Recipe website.[1]

In 2005, the Dias Family, along with another partner, purchased Roselyn Recipe and Roselyn bakery from the Clark Family. Two bakeries were established, one in Saint Louis and one in Indianapolis to continue the production of these products. Roselyn Recipe can be found and purchased in Kroger and Marsh stores all over central Indiana.[2]
