Hof Haus, a meat products company, is undergoing a $9.6 million expansion in Chicago, according to Daily Herald. Hof Haus was founded in Chicago over 60 years ago, and manufactures ham, pork and smoked turkey products.
The expansion is set to include the building of a new slicing and packaging facility and is expected to create 25 new jobs.
Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn and officials from John Hofmeister and Son Inc. announced the expansion Monday in Chicago. The project will be partially funded by a $2 million loan from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
