A food service equipment company is serving additional jobs to a Hopkins County town.

Advance Tabco announced the opening of a new supply distribution center in Dawson Springs. The company is investing $500,000 into the new center which will create six full-time jobs.

Officials say they picked Dawson Springs because of the future I-69 and its proximity to other facilities.

"We have our own trucks that run from facility to facility," said Ted Piazza of Advance Tabco, Inc. "and we can be from our Georgia facility to here in Dawson Springs in one day. Same thing with Tennessee, also Mississippi."

Officials add the plant will distribute kitchen equipment with manufacturing a possibility in the future.
