More Good News!

I always loved chocolate. From the Indianapolis Star:

Nestle USA announced today that it has selected Anderson for a new $359 million factory and distribution center.

The 880,000 square-foot facility will occupy 190 acres and churn out Nesquik Ready-to-Drink and Nestle Coffee-Mate Liquid products.
Nestle says it will hire nearly 300 hourly and salaried employees. Construction will begin later this year, with an anticipated opening in spring 2008.

Earlier news reports indicated the plant likely would come to Anderson.

I love covering good news... so you won't likely hear about the plant closings that are happening from me. They are out there too, but I like to be positive.
