Golfo di Napoli exceeds employment expectations


Golfo di Napoli Dairy & Cafe, which opened in Huntington County during late August this year, has already surpassed the job creation commitment made as part of the performance-based incentive offered by the Huntington County Commissioners.

The Company and economic development officials celebrated the news that the Company now employs over 30 people. The metric required to receive an incentive was the creation of 22 jobs prior to Dec. 31, 2019.

The Company originally planned to have an estimated 35 employees by the end of 2021 and is nearly two years ahead of that plan, according to a report from Huntington County Economic Development.

Matt Cottrill, director of operations for the Company, was joined by Larry Buzzard, president of the Huntington County Board of Commissioners; Mark Wickersham, executive director for the Huntington County Economic Development Corporation; County Commissioner Tom Wall; and County Commissioner Rob Miller. 

Golfo di Napoli is owned and operated by a team of fourth generation cheese producers from Italy. It crafts and distributes locally-sourced, organic Italian cheeses. The facility, constructed on 40 acres, is located on Indiana State Road 5 just south of Exit 278 on I-69 in Huntington County.
