In October I blogged about some bad news — the sudden closing of Archway Cookies here in Ashland, Ohio.
Late last week we learned that Lance Inc. — the Charlotte-based company who bought the assets of Archway Cookies — will be reopening Archway cookies. They’ll be giving hiring preference to prior employees.
It’s still unknown how many people will be re-hired. Based on the comments from the Lance officials, it sounds to me like quantities will be down, and that they’re preparing folks for fewer jobs than were originally lost.
Regardless, it’s great news to know that the aroma of fresh-baked cookies will once again saturate the air in Ashland.
Congratulations to all the local leaders — and former hardworking Archway employees — who played a part in this.
