An announcement was made at the Annual Bannock Development Investors Breakfast Thursday morning.

After discussing the recent success of companies like Amy’s Kitchen and Great Western Malting, they revealed Zip Kit Homes will be joining the Pocatello/Chubbuck community.

Zip Kit Homes is based in Mount Pleasant, Utah and is expanding to our area.

They build high-quality, specialty modular homes, also known as tiny homes.

The project will start with 20 jobs and increase to 40.

"Taking up some more of the talent that is available in our construction sector, folks that have been experiences and have had careers in building homes are very familiar with the kind of processes this company will need,” explains John Regetz, the

Executive Director of the Bannock Development Corporation. “So we haven't had a full recovery in the construction sector, so there is a talent base available for them to utilize."

The exact location has not been finalized, but Zip Kit Homes plans to be up and running by the end of May.
