Minong, Wisconsin Company Expands In Iowa

By  | 

A Wisconsin company is bringing new jobs to the northern Iowa town of Laurens.

For the past six years, the town has been working to land a major employer -- and the work has finally paid off.

The Minong, Wisconsin based meat-snack company, Link Snacks, will open a distribution and storage center June, creating 150 new jobs. The company will move into a building left vacant when a grocery distributor left town.

Last summer, more than 200 people lined Main Street and waved to the camera for a photo that was used a promotional piece to encourage Link Snacks to come to Laurens
