The Maryland Board of Public Works on Wednesday approved a $380,000 conditional loan to DOT Foods Inc. so the company can expand in Washington County.
The Illinois-based company, which buys products from food manufacturers and sells them to restaurant suppliers, plans to use the money to pay for construction of a storm water pond, according to a news release from the office of Gov. Parris Glendening.
"DOT Foods' expansion in Maryland shows the company's faith in the state and in the top-notch work force we have to offer," Glendening said in the news release.
The expansion is part of a $4 million expansion at the 70/81 Industrial Park on Elliott Parkway north of Williamsport, which will add 75,000 square feet of dry warehouse space, according to the release.
