Butterball, one of the leading brands for turkey, doesn’t just exist during the Thanksgiving season. In fact, they are growing! And, they are growing in not one, but two locations. An investment of $8.7 million will help the company expand facilities in Ozark as well as Huntsville, Arkansas. This will create 160 jobs in Ozark and 200 jobs in Huntsville, altogether totaling 360 new employment opportunities in Arkansas. While this might not be good for the turkeys, this is fantastic news for the state. It just goes to show the success of Right to Work economies.

“This is a great day for Northwest Arkansas. […] Butterball has chosen to expand not just one, but two, Arkansas facilities. The trust that they have placed in our workforce and business climate is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of our state and these two communities.” […]
“Communities are the foundation for economic development. […] Butterball does a lot for the communities in which they operate, and I am thrilled to see the investment the company is making in both Huntsville and Ozark.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
