On Thursday plans to develop north and east Lubbock received a boost as two businesses announced their plans to expand in that area. Frito Lay, which is already located in East Lubbock, will invest about $6 million to expand its warehouse plant. Also cash register services will move from its current location to north Lubbock. They manufacture scanning systems for grocery stores.
Neither company will add a significant numbers of employees at this time, but the hope is that more businesses will follow their lead.
