LIMA Food processor Kettle Creations LLC is considering putting a mashed-potato plant in the Gateway Commerce Industrial Park here.
It plans to a $21 million factory to make refrigerated mashed potatoes for sale in stores and use in restaurants. The operation would have 100 employees within three years at an average wage of $15 an hour, the Ohio Development Department said.
A company representative couldn t be reached for comment. The Ohio Tax Credit Authority this week agreed to return 40 percent of state payroll taxes collected on new jobs at the firm in the form of a credit toward its Ohio income taxes. The credit would last for five years. Allen County has also offered incentives, according to the Development Department.
