J&J Snack Foods Corp
., of Pennsauken, said it bought Hill & Valley Inc., a Rockville, Ill., bakery that specializes in sugar-free and no-sugar-added cakes, cookies, pies, muffins and other desserts for supermarkets.

The price was not disclosed, but J&J said Hill & Valley has more than $45 million in annual revenue. J&J, which is best known for its Superpretzel brand of soft pretzels and Icee frozen drinks, had $993 million in sales in the year ended Sept. 30.

Hill & Valley is J&J's first acquisition since May 2014, a unusual dry spell for a company that has made regular, small acquisitions part of its growth strategy for may years.


Boraie Development
 broke ground this month on The Beach at South Inlet in Atlantic City, an $81 million residential complex that is the first market-rate apartment project to go up in the city in decades.

Boraie disputes that. It's the reason why the New Brunswick-based company, which also is moving forward with a market-rate apartment complex in Newark, is betting on Atlantic City.

NJBIZ asked Boraie to break down five myths about doing business in Atlantic City. Click here to read the conversation.
