The expansion of the snack company's pretzel and tortilla chip production is expected to create up to 100 new jobs.

Financing for the project includes $15 million in bank loans, and $2 million directly from Barrel O' Fun-KLN Enterprises.

Construction on the building is already underway. The 78,000 square foot addition is expected to be completed by mid-July.

The largest share of the project is the elaborate production and cooking equipment--which is about $10.65 million of the total investment.
