Freshly to Open Facility in Howard, Plans to Add 500 Jobs
The gourmet, ready-to-eat meal delivery service Freshly will be opening its first East Coast facility in Howard County in the fall of 2017, adding 500 jobs during the next two years. The company will be locating in a 171,000-square-foot facility at 8704 Bollman Place, Savage.
