Hormel plans corporate headquarters expansion
Hormel Foods Corp. is expanding its corporate headquarters in Austin. The maker of Spam and other prepared foods broke ground on the expansion Monday, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The expansion is the first in more than 20 years, and officials say because of Hormel's continued growth, it's long overdue.
KAAL-TV reports the plan includes a 28,000-square-foot addition to the front of the building. Also planned are several large conference rooms, a state-of-the-art auditorium, a new cafeteria and a gym. Hormel hopes to have the project completed by the beginning of next year.
