More Jobs Coming to Laurel County

Laurel County could see about 400 new jobs over the next year as Truitt Brothers Incorporated prepares to open a new plant in East Bernstadt. The company expected to see about 500 people at a job fair today, but say lines wrapped around the building as they saw more than 11-hundred applicants. The Oregon based company says they look forward to doing business here.

"Our plan is to hire between 80 and 100 right now to get started, and then in the spring bring on a second shift which would be another hundred employees. By this time next year we hope to have between 3 and 400 new employees," says Ron Davis with Truitt Bros. Inc.

The Truitt Brothers plant will manufacture packaged food for companies like Nutra-System.

    I guess the schools will have to stop teaching the phrase "you want fries with that?" Kind of ironic that some of the fattest people in the nation will be working for Nutri System!
