Vienna Beef Plans Newcomerstown, Ohio, Operations

Food processor and distributor Vienna Beef Ltd. plans to establish pickle production and cold storage operations in Newcomerstown, Ohio. The $18.5 million project is expected to create 51 jobs.

The investment will include the acquisition and retrofitting of an existing 100,000-square-foot facility located at 500 Enterprise Drive.

“The opportunity to add to capacity and locations will allow Vienna Beef to grow the Chipico brand,” said Jack Bodman, President & CEO of Vienna Beef. “This Newcomerstown location is a positive addition to the effort, and we welcome the opportunity to work with the local community, farmers, and government to benefit the local economy over the long term.”

To support the project the Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved a 1.245 percent, seven-year Job Creation Tax Credit.

“This is a great opportunity for Tuscarawas County, with 51 new jobs and an associated annual payroll of more than $2.7 million,” noted Team NEO Chief Executive Officer Bill Koehler. Along with our local partners, ODOD and JobsOhio, we are sure Vienna Beef will continue to prosper in the Northeast Ohio Region.”

Vienna Beef Inc. is the main manufacturer of the hot dog used in the classic Chicago-style hot dog, as well as Polish sausage and Italian beef, delicacies of independent Chicago-style hot dog and beef stands. The company also produces a variety of deli meats, some of which are available at Chicago area supermarkets.

“Tuscarawas County Economic Development Corporation is proud to welcome Vienna Beef to Newcomerstown,” added Marla Akridge, Executive Director for Tuscarawas County Economic Development Corporation. “This company is a perfect fit for our rural community, and purchasing a vacant building is better yet. The opportunity will serve as a huge boost to the area, bringing long-term employment and short-term work for local contractors tasked with preparing the facility for occupancy. We look forward to eating a lot of pickles.”
