Major Candy Company Moving to DeKalb
Good news for DeKalb and the county as a whole. Should create jobs. With all the issues NIU is having, it is good to hear some positive news for the community.

500 new jobs by 2021 from phase 1, and another 500 eventually. Nice.

"Jujyfruit Stadium" anyone?

Are they moving there or opening a new location? The article says they're located in Chicago but I'm pretty sure they're in Forest Park, IL at the intersection of I-290 and Harlem Road.

Sounds like this will be a large distribution center. Phase 1 will create around 500 jobs while future phases will reach around 1,000. I remember reading that there was another company looking to build in the industrial park area in DeKalb. The city has kept a lot of this under-wraps until everything was finalized.

Screw them! I lost all respect for them when they dropped the name Alexander The Grape.

Grapeheads?
