Advance Pierre Foods Enid facilities will continue to play a crucial role in the business’ future, said Mark Allen, president of food service. Last year’s merger of Advance Food Co., Advance Brands and Pierre Foods to form Advance Pierre Foods will lead to further growth of the company, officials say. The company is hoping to make additional mergers this summer. With some 1,800 employees, Advance Pierre Foods remains the largest employer in Enid. (Photo provided)
