The James Skinner Baking Co. still hopes to expand in its Omaha hometown despite buying a former Sara Lee Bakery facility and creating some 400 new jobs in Paris, Texas, company President Audie Keaton said.
Keaton said the company didn't snub Omaha because of lingering bad feelings after the recent dispute over sewer fees for industrial users such as Skinner.
