New Jersey certainly has a reputation with the world after shows like the Sopranos, Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of New Jersey hit the airwaves. You’d think we just sat around eating cannolis and getting our nails done. Well, it might be accurate.

Meanwhile there were 411 retail bakeries employing 3,798 people in 2015. And the state boasted 53 establishments that manufactured ice cream and frozen desserts such as cakes and pastries.
