"Our experience in Oakwood, Hall County and the state of Georgia has been extremely positive. We have been able to hire terrific associates here and are impressed with local officials' ability to partner with business and to create win-win experiences for Georgia citizens and companies. In fact we are so impressed that our plans are to have a majority of our employees working in Oakwood by about 2014 or 2015. Aloha Spirit is alive in Hall County!" said CEO of King’s Hawaiian, Mark Taira.
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said, “With this significant investment, King’s Hawaiian is bringing the bread to Hall County. In its relatively short time in Georgia, King’s Hawaiian has proved a valuable member of the corporate community, and today’s expansion announcement shows the company’s faith in our business climate and the skilled local workforce. King’s Hawaiian growth and success will benefit northeast Georgia for many years to come.”
