Trenton, NJ – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today joined Liscio’s Italian Bakery’s co-owners, James Liscio and Chad Vilotti, for the grand re-opening of the company’s new facility in Glassboro.
“Liscio’s Italian Bakery’s decision to relocate its facility within New Jersey is not only a significant win for our economy, but also for the 176 employees who were at risk of losing their jobs,” Lt. Governor Guadagno said. “This is about more than just saving a number of jobs. This is about keeping hardworking New Jersey residents employed so they can continue to provide for their families and remain active members in their communities.”
Liscio’s Italian Bakery has manufactured baking breads, rolls, pastries and cakes since first opening its doors at its first location in Sicklerville in 1994. After several expansions, the company recently settled into its new 107,000 square-foot facility in Glassboro.
“We are happy to grow here in New Jersey,” Vilotti said. “We now have one of the premier bakeries in the entire region right here in South Jersey. We’ll stay close to our families and employees.”
The relocation to a larger facility was made possible in part by a $13.5 million Grow NJ award that Liscio’s Italian Bakery received in February 2014. This project is expected to provide the state with a net benefit of more than $24 million over a period of 20 years.
