A $250,000 state economic development grant is helping a local company expand.

Senator James Seward says DeIorio's in Frankfort used the money for new production lines and new refrigeration units.

Seward says the equipment upgrades allowed DeIorio's to add new product lines and add 40 new jobs.

DeIorio's now employs over 160 people and CEO Rob Ragusa says they expect to add another 19 jobs in the near future.

Their lines of dough products can be found at restaurants nationwide.

DeIorio's dough is used to make the pizza at Yankee Stadium.
