TAYLOR COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Taylor County Development Authority has confirmed to WCTV that the former Snyder's Lance plant has been purchased by a new snack company.
Food distribution company Amrouch Snacks & Candy officially made the purchase last Friday, March 2.
Snyder's Lance officially closed in September of 2017 due to a step in improving "financial performance, balancing costs and experienced levels of profitability."
Around 125 people were left without a job when Snyder's Lance shut down.
TCDA says Amrouch Snacks & Candy will initially bring 40 jobs to Perry.
The first job fair is set for Saturday, March 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the site at the former Snyder's Lance plant.
