Jonesboro inspectors issued a permit Thursday for a 90,000-square-foot expansion of the Nestle frozen food facility. The Stellar Group of Jacksonville, Fla., is the contractor for the $31 million construction project.

Nestlé announced in December it will invest more than $100 million to expand the company’s production facility here to include a new line to produce Hot Pockets brand sandwiches. As part of the expansion, the company plans to hire at least 100 new employees over two years, as well as renovate and expand the plant, which first opened in 2002.

The company has about 750 full-time employees who produce frozen foods for the Stouffer’s, Lean Cuisine, Digiorno, Tombstone and Sweet Earth brands.
