Bond approval could lead to company expansion in New Mexico, job creation

News

More jobs could be coming to the metro area if Bernalillo County Commissioners approve funds for a food and beverage distributor. 

Commissioners are set to meet Tuesday, October 23.

The $80 million industrial revenue bond would be for the company Ben E. Keith.

According to their schedule, the company could expand their regional headquarters here in the state.

Currently, it’s on Broadway but they plan to expand to an area southeast of I-40 and Unser.

The agenda says the project would create up to 93 new jobs.
