Freeport Chocolatier, Wilbur's, to expand

Wilbur's Chocolates has purchased a new location in Freeport. In the summer of 2008 they will begin the migration of their production, retail and warehouse facility from the present location on Independence Dr to the new location on Rt 1 South, just a few feet away.

Also joining Wilbur's in the new location is that great brownie-making team at Simply Divine Brownies. A third 'foodie' company, as yet unannounced, will also share the space.

Wilbur's has won numerous awards for their chocolates and Simply Divine Brownies were selected to supply the 'sweets' for the Academy Award gift bags.

The businesses will be adding up to 45 new jobs in the course of the next two years.

Be sure to stop in at the Wilbur's factory on Independence Dr on Tuesdays in August for a factory tour ($3). Simply Divine Brownies is presently located in Fort Andross in Brunswick.
