Palermo Villa, a private label pizza manufacturer, has received $342,000 in tax credits from the Wisconsin Department of Commerce to complete a $22 million expansion in Milwaukee. The project will create 56 jobs.
"We're extremely pleased to be expanding our facility in the newly developed Menomonee Valley, an area that has supported our company's steady growth," said Giacomo Fallucca, president and CEO of Palermo Villa Inc. "This expansion will enable us to capitalize on opportunities to extend our national distribution and respond quickly to increased product demand."
The company has been located on Milwaukee's East Side since 1964 when it began operations as an Italian bakery. It expects to employ a total of 450 people by 2011.
