Stockton’s Stagecoach restaurant feeding ThyssenKrupp

German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp AG promised 2,700 permanent jobs when it chose north Mobile County as the site of its first North American steel plant.

At the time, a “conservative” estimate of the potential economic impact indicated that 4,300 more non-ThyssenKrupp jobs would emerge in the wake of the company’s $3.7 billion investment in southwest Alabama.

Overstreet’s newest employees are living proof.

Lunch for ThyssenKrupp has become a regular part of the Stagecoach workday. The food is prepared in Stockton but served up on site — about 100 lunches a day.
