Baltimore-based Northeast Foods, which specializes in bread and roll baking, serves McDonald’s and other multi-chain casual dining operations as well as retail and wholesale customers. The company has nine plants operating in five states.

A M King, a design-build firm based in Charlotte, N.C., has begun work on the expansion, A M King said Nov. 28. The project also will include a new retaining wall, a new access road and energy-efficient lighting.
