A maker of dinner, sandwich and snack rolls will open a plant in northeast Georgia—bringing with it new jobs. California-based King's Hawaiian will build a bakery and distribution facility in Oakwood in Hall County.

It’s expected to create more than 120 jobs over two years and another 100 jobs by the year 2015. The company expects to begin production at the new facility in fall of next year.

“Georgia’s economy receives a considerable boost from the success of food processors in our state, which employ more Georgians than any other sector of manufacturing,” said Governor Perdue. “By selecting Georgia and Hall County, King’s Hawaiian serves as another example of how our state’s pro-business climate continues to create opportunities for new and existing companies, and for communities throughout the state.”
