Food service distributor to add 108 jobs in Newnan

It’s been a pretty good run for the state’s economic development machine.

While unemployment remains stubbornly high here, there have been several positive announcements in recent months, with employers both new and familiar to Georgia adding jobs by the hundreds.

The latest good word comes from a big North Carolina food distributor, MBM Foodservice.

The company, which already has an operation in LaGrange in Troup County, plans to create 108 jobs in Newnan in Coweta County. MBM will lease a shell building in Coweta Industrial Park and refurbish it.

Back to the key news here: They’ll begin hiring in the first quarter of 2012.
