Frito-Lay adding space, 100 jobs to Jonesboro plant.
"The jobs won't happen all at once," said Frito-Lay spokesman Charles Nicolas. "It will be gradual."
Nicolas didn't say when the plant will start hiring workers. Frito-Lay also will be investing an undisclosed sum in expanding the snack food plant. Nicolas also didn't say how much the plant was expanding, but he said Frito-Lay is adding a new potato chip production line to the plant. Nicolas said he didn't know when the new line will launch but that it should be soon.
Frito-Lay, which opened the plant in 1998, currently has about 600 employees. In 2001, Frito-Lay invested $35 million to expand the plant.
