Gov. Brian Kemp, face mask and all, is scheduled to be in town late next week.
Kemp will take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony at old Parham Kitchen on the campus of Central State Hospital, according to a press release.
The 123,000-square-foot facility currently is being transformed into a modern “fast-freeze facility,” with the capacity to produce “well over 200,000 meals and food components per day.”
“The partnership between Food Service Partners and the Redevelopment Authority to renovate the Parham Kitchen will create hundreds of jobs in our community and throughout Georgia,” said Mike Couch, executive director of the Central State Hospital Local Redevelopment Authority. “Creating economic opportunity and jobs for Georgians on the former Central State Hospital campus is the central mission of the CSHLRA and after three and half years of working with FSP, I am delighted to say that this project will create the most jobs to date of any project on the campus.”
The ribbon cutting is scheduled for July 23. “Due to space limitations and social distancing protocols,” the ribbon cutting is invitation only, according to the press release.
