Graceland Fruits in Frankfort is looking to hire 35 new employees to add more shifts and more production lines for their worldwide dried fruit products

More and more Americans are turning to healthier snacks creating more demand for their dried fruits that are used in products like granola bars, trail mix and baked goods.

Graceland has also seen a demand from Asia and Europe, so much so that they can't keep up, meaning they need more help.

The company is holding their first job fair to fill the positions this Friday, October 25 in Traverse City.

The fair will begin at 9 AM and run to 1 PM at the Manpower office at 3135 Logan Valley Road off of SOuth Airport between Woodmere and Cass Road.
