Among the pluses were Lynchburg's industrial park on Lakeside Drive, where work already is underway to build an access road and infrastructure for the new plant.
Lynchburg also has comparatively attractive utility rates, a key selling point for Frito Lay which would be a large user of water and sewer services.

Still, all of this is NOT a done deal.. nothing's been signed and the city and Frito Lay are still negotiating certain items.

Blood was mixed up and subsequently sent out to hospitals with incorrectly labelled blood types.
Employees re-created records, to indicate they received required training without actually being trained and sometimes blood remained unrefrigerated for two hours or more.
