“The citizens of Topeka and Shawnee County created the possibility for this project through the passage of the half-cent sales tax for economic development. Because of their vision, we celebrate Mars’ plans to build in Topeka,” said Victor Miller, chair, Shawnee County Board of County Commissioners.
“How Sweet It Is! Topeka is a wonderful place with people that take pride in producing quality products. The continued growth of our primary employers is one indicator of that statement. We welcome Mars to the family of Topeka and Shawnee County,” said William Bunten, mayor, city of Topeka.
