SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) – A San Francisco-based company has decided to build its new plant in the Nebraska Panhandle city of Scottsbluff.
KYS Foods is using bank loans, $505,000 in federal grant funding and $360,000 in local incentives for its project, which will cost around $4.2 million.
The company turns beef and pork into Asian-style jerky and sausage.
Company President KaiYen Mai said Thursday that the move puts her plant nearer meat supplies and will save money because the costs in Nebraska will be lower than those in California.
The plant is expected to bring at least 20 new jobs to Scottsbluff. The plant will be built at the airport industrial park and is expected to be finished by June.
