JUNCTION CITY, Ore. – Construction on a new granola factory in Junction City is underway. It's expected to create dozens of jobs and be a huge boost to the economy.

Rick Kissock, the Executive Director of the Tri-County Chamber of Commerce said the Canadian manufacturer "Northern Gold Foods" will be leasing the space from Eugene-based Grain Millers which owns the property.

Kissock said the space is just off Highway 99 on Meadowview Road. He said the factory is going to be 300,000 square feet and is expected to create 75 jobs.

KEZI spoke with Katie Souers who owns Max Porter's Coffee House in Junction City. She expects nothing but good things for her business with the new arrival.


"I can't see it hurting us at all,” said Souers. “I only see good things. Even since Winnebago came in, we see them all the time, coming into lunch or getting orders for lunch and things like that. So I am excited about this.”

Chambers Construction is in charge of building the facility. Crews said architects are still finalizing the design of the project and expect to finish construction fall 2018.
