The sales division has 19 employees in administration, sales, marketing, nutrition and food safety. Annual salaries range from $50,000 to over $100,000.

The Kannapolis Council is expected to approve a one-time incentive grant for $100,000. A Kannapolis press release says the company anticipates spending $882,000 to build out and equip 6,800 square feet of space.

“We are pleased that this Dole Food Division is moving to Kannapolis. This will strengthen the links between nutrition and the studies underway on the North Carolina Research Campus. We look forward to welcoming them to our community,” commented Kannapolis Mayor Darrell Hinnant.
