20 Jun Costco breaks ground for poultry processing plant

New state-of-the-art facility to begin production in April, 2019; will bring about 800 jobs to community and $1.2 billion economic impact each year.
Yesterday, Gov. Pete Ricketts joined Fremont Mayor Scott Getzschman and officials from Costco, Lincoln Premium Poultry, the Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership, and Greater Fremont Development Council to break ground for a new state-of-the-art poultry processing plant, hatchery, and feed mill facility near Fremont.
The project has made headlines over the last year-and-a-half, since early 2016, when it was announced that a then-unnamed company was considering the Fremont area to build a new poultry processing facility.
