A longtime West Union business will be closing soon after be bought out by another company. The assets of H&H Foodservice Distribution have been acquired by Hawkeye Food Service Distribution of Iowa City.
H&H employees are being offered temporary positions with Hawkeye during the transition period, and some may be kept on for permanent positions. H&H, which has been in West Union for 60 years, will then close its doors at the end of the month. Company officials cite the current economic conditions for the move.
H&H once had 90 employees until some recent layoffs. Officials at Hawkeye say they are attempting to make the transition for H&H customers as smooth as possible.
