Hubs announces expansion into Franklin

SEDLEY

Hubs, the gourmet peanut company based in Sedley, will expand operations into the building formerly used by Farm Fresh. Lynne Rabil, president of Hubs, made the announcement earlier Thursday afternoon during a ceremony on the company grounds in Sedley.

Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Bettina K. Ring attended and presented to Rabil a $40,000 check from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund. The money will be used to aid the company in its growth.

The Tidewater News will publish more details as they become available.
