General Mills has announced a new project in partnership with JobsOhio and Ohio Southeast that will expand their operations and bring more job opportunities to the Wellston area.
The General Mills Wellston manufacturing facility specializes in making pizza snacks for its Totino’s brand and is one of the largest frozen food manufacturing facilities in the United States.
The company will invest millions of dollars into its Wellston plant, and add jobs to reach a total of nearly 900 full-time employees at the facility. The project is focused on improving operations to be more productive and efficient, increasing overall capacity.
Jackson County Economic Development Partnership is also supporting the project with infrastructure improvements and an enterprise zone agreement for the location’s new construction plans.
