NORTHWEST GLENDALE — The smell of freshly baked bread wafts around Millbrook Bakery on San Fernando Road, but it won’t for long. That smell — and about 570 jobs — are slated to be eliminated in October, when the bakery, which produces Wonder Bread, is set to close up shop, company spokeswoman Maya Pagoda said. The bakery is one of four Southern California bakeries owned by Kansas City-based Interstate Bakery Corp. that are slated to close. Interstate has been operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy since 2004, and the move is part of an effort to bring the struggling company back into the black, Pagoda said.
