In recent months, JEDCO shepherded major business projects across the finish line:
• The grand opening of Fuji Vegetable Oil’s $70-million facility marked the creation of 40 high-paying local jobs, sending a signal to the world that Jefferson Parish is open for global business.
• After an extensive search for its new North American headquarters, Bemana’s leaders chose to keep operations in Jefferson. The specialized recruitment firm plans to employ 50 people by 2030.
• JEDCO financed the new drive-thru PJ’s Coffee on Carrollton using an SBA 504 Loan, a prime example of how JEDCO’s financing capabilities serve businesses beyond Jefferson Parish’s borders.
