Greensboro, N.C. -- A family operated food supply company is getting a group of owners who say they want to create 400 new jobs in the Greensboro area. Two of the executives buying Southern Foods from the Nussbaum family tell the News & Record of Greensboro that they expect to triple the company's local work force from 200 to as many as 600 employees.
H. Trey Pounders will be the new president of Southern Foods. He says he's planning an aggressive marketing program that looks for more sales in existing markets and expansions to new territory.
The sale is expected to close on Sept. 12. An amount has not been disclosed. Southern Foods says on its Web site that the company distributes quality foods throughout the Southeast.
