Chinese Companies Aim to Partner with Columbus Co.
During his recent trip to China, Columbus County Economic Development Director Gary Lanier talked with a Chinese businessman interested in partnering with the owner of Tortimex to open a chain of Mexican restaurants in China and manufacturing the taco shells at Tortimex. If this deal happens, Tortimex, which has been closed since last May, will reopen.
