Hormel’s Dold Foods in Wichita, Kansas is expanding and will employ nearly 400 more people, more than doubling its current workforce. Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell said the city council is supposed to discuss the plans further.
The company is planning a new 156,000 square-foot expansion over the next five years at its existing location. The cost of the expansion is $132 million and will be tax free for Hormel.
Dold Food’s produces bacon and food service layout bacon items and are a large contributor to the overall bacon production for Hormel Foods.
The company currently employs 275 workers. The new positions would offer not only benefits but also a starting pay of $62,000 a year. The jobs would deal with food processing, manufacturing, and administration.
Longwell is excited about what this growing business may mean for the town of Wichita and what its expansion might also do for other businesses.
