Temple, Tx -- Performance Food Group Company (PFG) and The Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) announced that Performance Foodservice ‒ Temple will soon begin a $10-million expansion project. The expansion will include construction of a 76,000-square foot addition to the current operation at 4141 Lucius McCelvey Drive and is expected to create 100 additional jobs during the next 60 months.
The Temple EDC Board of Directors approved an economic development agreement that includes a cash grant, and The City of Temple also provided a 50 percent tax abatement to the company for five years.
“We are pleased and proud to have PFG as an important member of the Temple business and manufacturing community,” said David Blackburn, Temple EDC President. “New business moving to Temple is always exciting to celebrate but supporting our existing businesses and enabling their growth is a crucial component of effective economic development efforts.
