(KLZA)-- A grand opening  and ribbon cutting was held for Falls City’s newest business Tuesday morning. 

Doug Haycock, President of Falls City Foods says the local facility was able to be up and running about 10 days after closing on the purchase of the facility. 

The company is owned by Great West – Teeuwissen, and also operates York Cold Storage in York, Nebraska and has additional operations in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.   

Great West – Teeuwissen does processing, importing and exporting, of animal by-products used by companies in the production of pet food and animal feed.  

Doug Haycock’s son Spencer manages the Falls City Foods facility.  

Falls City Foods has hired several employees to get started, with a goal of about 20 employees in about a year. 

Falls City Mayor Jerry Oliver, EDGE Executive Director Beckie Cromer and Nebraska Department of Economic Development Director Courtney Dentlinger joined Doug Haycock in speaking during the ceremony.

Haycock said the Nebraska Department of Economic Development directed him to Falls City as a possible location for expanding their business.  Great West – Teeuwissen is located in Colorado and there is another facility in operation in York, Nebraska. 

EDGE also played a key role in the process. Haycock praised the efforts of Beckie Cromer, noting he worked with the seller and was involved in every aspect of the transaction to make it happen. 

EDGE sponsored a free lunch, open to the public following the ceremony.
