JEDCO’s innovative approach to economic development drives investment and job creation in Jefferson Parish. From securing funding for infrastructure improvements to making long-term connections, JEDCO’s behind-the-scenes work brings bold business projects into being:
• A 95-year-old, family-owned textile company announced plans to expand in Jefferson Parish. Loop Linen will invest $15 million to build a new state-of-the-art facility in Avondale.
• Port Orleans Brewing Company is expected to bring a brewpub to Gretna with construction forecasted to start in 2024.
• Pigeon Catering cut the ribbon on a 55,000-square-foot headquarters in late October. The $6 million renovation allows the local caterer to streamline operations.
