Sara Lee is another example of the great use of IRB's issued by the Unified Government to increase both jobs and revenue in Kansas City, KS. Sara Lee renovated the former 187,000 square foot ConAgra Foods plant and opened a state of the art meat slicing facility. This move created over 250 jobs, 55% of which were guaranteed to be workers from Wyandotte County. Sara Lee was granted a 10-year, 75 percent property tax abatement on $31 million of planned improvements at the plant. The abatement’s value is $9.67 million.
