Frozen Food Express officially welcomed today


Mo Governor Mike Parson
In a formal ceremony this morning Frozen Food Express was officially welcomed to Butler by Governor Mike Parson, Mayor Jim Henry and FFE CEO Jim Richards. Also present were other officials including Bates county commissioners Ken Mooney, Trent Nelson, Jim Wheatley and Representative Patricia Pike.

Governor Parson welcomed everyone  with assuring words that Missouri and especially Butler will serve FFE quite
well. Parson reinforced that our state not only has stayed strong throughout the pandemic,  but is one of the few states that saw growth in terms of industry and jobs over the last year. In his opinion, Missouri provides the perfect environment for businesses such as FFE.
