WORCESTER — The expansion of Table Talk Pies to the South Worcester Industrial Park could attract other businesses, creating jobs and bolstering the tax base, in an area of the city that has been inactive for years, officials said.
Table Talk is planning to lease a new building on Southgate Street, which will be constructed by Chacharone Properties, LLC, according to a letter from City Manager Edward M. Augustus, Jr. to the City Council for its meeting on Tuesday.
Augustus in a phone interview on Friday afternoon said the Table Talk building will be the first new construction in the area.
The city worked to take down an old factory at the industrial park years ago, and tried to create parcels that were ready to develop, the city manager said.
