A company laid its proverbial chips on the table Monday night by announcing a nearly $50 million expansion at its location in Jonesboro.

Frito-Lay officials announced Monday night that they would expand an existing Jonesboro manufacturing facility with a $45.7 million addition.

Company officials with Frito-Lay spoke to Craighead County justices about the major announcement.

The expansion will provide about 30 new jobs and expand its facility on Arkansas Highway 18 by nearly 80,000 square feet.

Arkansas’ new $1.3 billion superproject, Big River Steel, begins construction soon in Mississippi County, and Arkansas Northeastern College officials announced Monday (Nov. 3) two workforce readiness programs to aid local residents hoping to join the company’s team — both offered at no cost to potential students.
