KRESHA APPLAUDS BARRETT PETFOOD INNOVATIONS EXPANSION TO LITTLE FALLS

Little Falls, MN – Representative Ron Kresha, R-Little Falls, applauded the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development’s August 12th announcement that Barrett Petfood Innovations will expand to Little Falls. The expansion will create 85 new jobs in the next three years with an average wage of $15.98 per hour.

“I am proud to welcome Barrett Petfood Innovations to Little Falls,” said Kresha. “Our area is a great place to grow a business, and I am excited to see the positive effect this will have on our communities in and around Little Falls. Central Minnesota is growing and housing in our area is affordable, so I hope to see many more businesses expanding in our area in years to come.”

Little Falls has an estimated total population of 8,686, with over 61% of residents currently in the labor force.

DEED is supporting the expansion with investments from both the Minnesota Investment Fund and the Job Creation Fund, programs that Kresha has been a longtime supporter of.
