LEBANON, Ind. - A central Indiana maker of frozen bakery products plans to add 219 new jobs by 2017.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Brownsburg-based Maplehurst Bakeries will invest $78 million to renovate and equip a 180,000 square-foot plant in Lebanon to house its warehouse, distribution and manufacturing operations for cakes and cupcakes.
