Tyson Foods is planning a $15.5 million expansion at its Tyson Fresh Meats facility in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. The expansion of the facility which produces case-ready beef and pork products is expected to bring the need for 157 new jobs.

The Tyson expansion includes the addition of four production lines and expanded storage capabilities, the Nashville Post reported. The company is expected to start hiring new employees in June.
