TOWN OF AMSTERDAM -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Tuesday that New Jersey-based Driscoll Foods will establish its second food service distribution facility at the former Quandt's facility on Route 5, and create nearly 60 new jobs.

"When we decided to expand our market presence, the Mohawk Valley/Capital Region area in particular stood out as the best place to invest and grow our business," Driscoll Foods President Tim Driscoll was quoted in a press release from the governor's office. "We are breathing new life into a vacant facility, and the new jobs for the community that comes with it."

As reported by The Recorder in April, the Montgomery County Economic Development and Planning Department worked with Driscoll Foods to submit an industrial development agency application to help with the move.

According to Cuomo's announcement, Empire State Development offered Driscoll a grant of up to $200,000 to assist with the purchase and renovations "in the distressed area of Amsterdam."

A Driscoll Foods employee said Tuesday the company has been operating in Amsterdam for approximately one month. The press release from Cuomo's office said the company plans to be operational in the Amsterdam facility within weeks.
