COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Bob Evans Farms Inc. says it will close two food production plants in Ohio next year and beef up its production at a Texas facility.

The Ohio-based restaurant and food company plans to shut down plants in Springfield in western Ohio and Bidwell in southern Ohio next summer as it focuses on convenience foods, packaged side dishes and other higher-growth opportunities.

The move will affect about 110 employees. The company says it will try to place some of them in other jobs with Bob Evans.

It’s also investing $23 million or more to add lines and boost production of ready-to-eat foods at a facility in Sulphur Springs, Texas.

Chairman and CEO Steve Davis says Bob Evans remains committed to investing and growing in its home state.
