An Illinois-based seafood processor is opening a facility in Gloucester that’s expected to bring 200 jobs to the city.
The Mazzetta Company has purchased a 65,000-square-foot plant in the Blackburn Industrial Park and plans to invest $10 million in the facility with the goal of opening next year. The 200 jobs will be full- and part-time.
The investments include modern processing machinery and an 8,000-square-foot tank house.
Highland Park, Illinois-based Mazzetta is an importer, processor and distributor of frozen seafood products to restaurants, retailers and the hospitality industry. The company has received tax incentives from the state and city.
Mayor Carolyn Kirk says Mazzetta realized that Gloucester offers “innovation, collaboration and an unrivaled environment for doing business on the ocean.”

Last chance for Scrap Metal before winter hits.
The dumpster is behind the schoolhouse now, but it will be gone right after Thanksgiving. Anything at least 70% metal can go in the dumpster or close to it.
This is a great opportunity to get rid of your old grill, your washing machine, lawn mowers, bikes, pots and pans, etc, etc, etc…
100% goes to restoring the Blynman schoolhouse.
We certainly live in a beautiful place.

On Saturday Clean Gloucester and The One Hour at a Time Gang went to clean the cemeteries off Centennial Avenue. What an amazing piece of history we discovered. The years on the Tombstones go back to before the revolutionary war, soldiers from the Continental Army and Civil War Veterans were put to rest in this sacred ground. Late on Saturday afternoon had to go back and take some photos. We as a community need to preserve these cemeteries clean and respected.
There is a new store at 15 Lexington Avenue called The Cheshire Cat/ this boutique store has Antiques and Décor.
