Stokesdale, NC -- A gluten-free bakery has chosen Rockingham County for its operations location.
Kalo Foods will add 21 various new jobs, averaging $33,524 annual salary, and plans to invest $650,000 into the local economy. The company makes artisan pizzas and pie crusts, cookies, brownies and mixes. Their products will be sold in the Triad area and online.
A $70,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund was used to fund this project.
Kalo Foods was created in 2011 by Michael Cusato, a service-disabled veteran of the U.S. Air Force, and Gerald Cusato, a U.S. Army veteran.
"The decision to base our new gluten-free commercial bakery in North Carolina was made based on the pro-business attitude and business incentives offered by the state and Rockingham County," said Cusato. "We look forward to working with our new county and state partners who have helped make our decision possible. Our success will be North Carolina's success."
