Chiquita Brands/Fresh Express plant to open in Streamwood

STREAMWOOD -- Fresh Express, a division of Chiquita Brands, is about to become Streamwood's single largest employer when its new plant begins operations on the former Duraco Products site.

More than 700 employees will work at the facility at 1109 E. Lake St., which consolidates the functions of four separate sites in Franklin Park. Fresh Express makes packaged, ready-to-eat salad products.

Zahed called the business, which will open in April, a "toy store" for homeowners and contractors.

Further north on Rand Road, Petco and Lazy Boy Furniture will be opening in the old PetSmart location at the Annex of Arlington, Melaniphy said.
