Imagine Monroe, which is the new name for the Monroe County economic development organization that used to be called COMIDA, approved tax incentives for four projects on Wednesday that County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo says will create a total of 119 new full-time jobs.

They include:

-Allied Frozen Storage in Brockport- that’s a real estate holding company that will be leasing 146,000 square feet to a company called SatisPie for the expansion of manufacturing, finishing and freezing pies. SatisPie distributes pies to wholesale accounts across the U.S., and is expanding in the Town of Sweden. Their current location in Henrietta will remain in operation. County officials say SatisPie had considered relocating to Canada or North Carolina, and they say the $9.25 million project will retain 58 full time jobs and is projected to create 57 new full time jobs over the next three years.

-The Pike Companies-the large, local real estate development company wants to consolidate operations in Henrietta and Rochester into one location in Rochester. It’s a $7.4 million dollar project projected to create 30 new jobs over three years.

-OFD Foods-that company headquartered in Oregon, makes freeze dried products. The county says the firm considered multiple locations for its expansion, and will now build a 42,000 square foot production facility in Henrietta to service their East Coast and Midwest customers. The project is expected to create 30 new jobs over three years.

-REO Holdings & Center City Place- those companies own 131 – 163 State Street in Rochester and want to rehabilitate and renovate six parcels on State Street originally constructed in the early 1900’s. The parcels have been substantially vacant for nearly 30 years, and this $7 million project would create commercial/retail space and apartments. It is projected to create 2 new jobs over three years and officials say additional jobs will be created by the new commercial tenants.
