After being under new ownership for less than a year, Dippin' Dots LLC will be expanding its operations in Paducah and adding 30 new, full-time jobs. Governor Steve Beshear announced Tuesday the owners will be investing more than 3.1 million dollars to purchase energy efficient equipment, upgrade processes, and renovate the facility.
Beshear says many associate Dippin' Dots with the fun enjoyed at theme parks, fairs and festivals and as Kentuckians, we are proud that this global brand comes from the Commonwealth.
Dippin' Dots President Scott Fischer says this investment underscores the company's long-term commitment and the upgrade of the unique production facility supports the plan to increase the ice cream's presence across the United States and other countries in the coming years.
To encourage the investment and job growth in Paducah, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $500,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. KEDFA also approved Dippin' Dots for tax benefits up to $25,000 through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act.
