WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) – The Dold Food Company held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday on a new 156,000 square foot expansion to their existing facility on North Ohio. Dold has been owned by Hormel since the early 1980s and the $132 million expansion will be used for a pre-cooked bacon manufacturing facility. 

KSN News spoke with Wichita Vice Mayor Janet Miller who says this means new jobs in Wichita.

"This company has been in Wichita and they chose to stay here," said Miller. "And not only stay but to expand here which tells us something about how they and their employees view Wichita."

The expansion is expected to be finished in 12 to 18 months.
