Blount Fine Foods, Fall River, Mass., advanced the transition of its McKinney, Texas, business it acquired back in January, and is now actively seeking to fill 25 open positions on the factory floor and in business operations.
“Everything we do in McKinney, Texas, is key to our plans for becoming the largest, most sought-after fresh soup company in the country,” says Todd Blount, president and CEO. “The people of McKinney will find Blount is a great place to work because we will invest in our people and promote a positive, challenging and rewarding work environment, and they will find we are a good citizen in the community, one that not only gives back, but also creates opportunity.”
On the heels of acquiring Food Source LP, Blount Fine Foods began implementing the training and professional development programs it uses in its Massachusetts and Rhode Island plants.
This summer, Blount Fine Foods will begin to install and implement production equipment for making its signature soups and side dishes, which it sells to grocery retailers and restaurants nationwide.
“It is our sincere hope that the 25 positions we have posted now are just the beginning,” adds Blount. “We know that our success creates opportunity for our employees and for the communities in which they live, which is something we take very seriously. We see every hire as an investment in our future, and our professional development efforts have established a long track record of promoting from within, which is exactly our vision for McKinney.”
