FREMONT – On Monday, Governor Pete Ricketts and local leaders celebrated another clear marker of economic momentum for the State of Nebraska and the Fremont region with Lincoln Premium Poultry’s groundbreaking for Costco’s first-ever poultry processing plant, hatchery, and feed mill facility.  Projected to open in April 2019, the $300-million project is expected to generate an overall economic impact of $1.2 billion annually, create approximately 800 new jobs, and connect Costco to a dedicated network of producers in eastern Nebraska.
