Sugar Foods in Villa Rica could be ready for what Villa Rica City Attorney David Mecklin called a "significant" expansion after the city and Carroll County commissioners approve an incentive package for the  multinational food products company this week.
Mecklin says the agreement calls for Sugar Foods to expand their current location in the 'City Of Gold' with an additional monetary investment in the plant and the creation of additional jobs.
Donna Lackey, Senior Vice President Of Business Development For Carroll Tomorrow says Sugar Foods has pledged to create 50 jobs within 5 years; and a new 53-million dollar investment into the community within 7 years.
