A food service equipment manufacturer based in Preble County plans to expand with a satellite office in downtown Dayton. Henny Penny has leased a space in The Manhattan building on East Third Street. Henny Penny executives expect at least 20 employees to be based in the new office within the next few months and hope the new location will continue to attract more talent. “There are things you can’t get in a suburban location. There’s just a different feel that you get in an urban environment,” Henny Penny Chairman and Chief Executive, Rob Connelly, tells the Dayton Daily News. “We think it will be a really cool spot for people to work.” Connelly says recent work with software developer, Mile Two, helped motivate the expansion to downtown’s Innovation District. The Manhattan is also home to the Dayton Daily News, Mile Two, and government contracting firm, Barbaribum, among others.
