Announced today during a special Public Hearing, the Johnston County Board of Commissioners and the Selma Town Council approved a grant resolution for Do Good Foods.
Planned for a 2023 opening, Do Good Foods will be located in Eastfield Crossing at Exit 97 on I95. By 2024 a minimum of 90 jobs will be created at an average payrate of $63,500.00 per year plus benefits.
AdVenture Development began construction at Eastfield Crossing in 2021. This 3 million square foot development will be a mixed-use of business, retail, medical, and single and multi-family residences and more.
“New investment with no risk” Chris Johnson, Johnston County Director of Economic Development said when presenting the economic development incentive grant to both boards.
Selma Mayor, Byron McAllister said “The incentive agreements the Town of Selma and Johnston County made with Do Good Foods and the leasing of building 100 is a major step forward for Eastfield Crossing. We are seeing our investments and economic amenities pay off. Congratulations to Do Good Foods for the success that has helped bring its business to Selma. Their agribusiness will fit right in at The Crossroads of Tradition and Innovation.”
There will be an estimated 264 direct and indirect jobs due to the investment by Do Good Foods. All while helping our planet save on waste! It’s a WIN WIN!
