You might recognize your company or a friends business in the description. It takes a village, and economic gardening has a lot of moving parts. PCDA is happy to be a catalyst and driver in our community. Now, about growing our next workforce....
Dorada Foods has been in the Ponca City community for a little over 10 years now. And growing their workforce has been a main focus. Starting with 350 jobs and a projected economic impact of over $217 million for 10 years, this McDonalds contracted facility has grown their product lines every few years to now employ over 700. That’s a lot of nuggets and other products heading to stores outside the Ponca City, heck even the Oklahoma area. Read more about the original announcement here. Congratulations Dorada Foods and all their employees for a successful ten years. Here's to twenty more.
