S.C. Governor Nikki Haley spent the morning in Chester County for the groundbreaking of a 3.1-million dollar expansion of a specialty foods distribution company.
Haddon House opened its doors in Richburg in 1989 and will soon expand its distribution center and hire 100 new employees.
Haddon had once considered moving to Florida but Chief Executive Officer Dave Anderson, Sr., said Chester County and the state made the decision to stay very easy.
Haley said Haddon’s decision to stay is another big win for the Palmetto State.
Haddon House currently employs a workforce of 250. Haley said the state is pitching in to make sure future employees are exactly what Haddon House needs.
Haddon distributes specialty food products sold in high-end grocery stores across the country.
The new expansion is set to come online by 2017.
