WACO – Waco City Council and the McLennan County Commissioners Court approved an $850,000 economic development grant for Jessup Manufactured Housing LLC.
The new mobile homebuilder is set to move into the former Patriot Homes building on West Loop 340.
The company will add $1.25 million worth of equipment to its facility and hire up to 200 full-time employees by 2020, with plans to hire 150 by the end of the year.
The company will build single-wide homes of less than 1,200 sf for shipment to independent retailers, pricing them between $45,000 to $49,000.
Owner David Jessup said he likes the Waco market because it is centrally located to communities the company will serve, and it is a semi-industrial town with a quality workforce.
