Granville County Economic Development announces RiceWrap Foods Corporation, a food manufacture with a patent-pending method of delivering rice used as sushi, selects the Falls Commerce Center Building located in Butner. As a new operations site, the 100,000 square foot building is the perfect facility to expand RiceWrap production. A variety of jobs will be created with this expansion, including production operators, logistics and sales personnel, and managers. The company’s $10 million dollar investment will result in creating 305 new jobs for Granville County.
“I am excited to see new jobs being added to Granville County and the opportunity that it brings to the residents of Granville County,” stated Granville County Commissioner Chairman Edgar Smoak. “I am supportive of any projects that bring jobs and value to Granville County residents.”
“This project is exciting for Granville County on the surface because it is bringing a large number of jobs. Deeper than that it exemplifies the connection between local units of government, state government and the private sector all working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome in growing our economy,” stated Granville County Commissioner Timothy Karan.
“We welcome RiceWrap Foods to the Butner business community,” stated Mayor Terry Turner of Butner. “We are pleased that RiceWrap decided to select Butner and expand into a new facility, creating numerous jobs for our citizens.”
Granville County Economic Development Director Harry Mills stated that in addition to North Carolina Commerce and the Economic Partnership of North Carolina, other key partners in this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the Golden Leaf Foundation, and the Town of Butner.
