Food distributor to open in vacant property on Chisholm Trail
The Round Rock City Council approved an economic development agreement Dec. 3 with ProPortion Foods LLC for the company to expand to Round Rock.
ProPortion Foods creates and packages frozen foods and distributes to retailers. The company is based in Los Angeles and has two facilities currently operating there.
Ben White, vice president of economic development at the Round Rock Chamber, said this is the first of multiple steps to bring the company to Round Rock at a later date.
White said the project started last year after the mayor, city manager, and momentum investor toured the LA facilities while on an economic development trip.
