COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - While some companies are shutting their doors, a Collier County company is expanding and bringing new jobs to the area.

GoldCoast Salads started only about ten years ago with three employees.  Now, they're at 280 workers and building a new 65,000 square foot manufacturing plant for their seafood dips.

The owners tell WINK News they plan on hiring more with their new building.

"Between 15 and 50 over the next five years, " Owner Peter Radno says.  "Also, what this building is going to enable us to do is expand our product line.  We'll be able to expand three to four more items."

They plan to keep expanding and will also continue to operate out of their East Naples location nearby.
