Major Pet Food Maker Eyes Dubuque

271 jobs are expected to be created over the next three years as a major pet food manufacturer plans to expand its national operations to Dubuque. Simmons Pet Food Inc. is the nation’s sixth-largest pet food maker and wants to purchase the old Flexsteel Industries building by the end of this year. Dubuque City Council held a special session Friday to help move the plans along.
