St. Pauls Finds Itself in Right Spot

November 3, 2017

This Robeson County town has turned its location into a major selling point and is cashing in as a result. According to the town’s administrator and the county’s economic development director, St. Pauls and its 2,400 residents have landed the last five major economic development projects in Robeson County: Johnson Brothers Asphalt in 2014, Sanderson Farms in 2015, Prestage Foods and SPX Meuller Steam in 2016, and Pepsi-Cola Ventures LLC this year. Between the five projects, almost $170 million will have been invested and about 1,300 jobs will have been created — as well more than 700 jobs preserved.
