Bear Creek Corporation
Break Creek Corporation started their enterprise over a hundred years ago, but in 1997, they opened a new distribution center in the industrial park of Licking County, named the Hopewell Center, referencing the Native Americans that had once inhabited the area. Licking county was chosen due to the abundance of work force labor available. Bear Creek Corporation is also known for starting a very popular company, Harry and David.
