The country’s largest food industry redistributor announces that it will pay its full-time employees a $500 bonus this year.

Dot Foods announced at their national business meeting that it would give the bonuses to about 4,800 employees at all twelve Dot locations in the United States and both Dot Food locations in Canada.

The bonus comes in addition to Dot’s regular bonus structure.

Dot officials cite the 2017 tax reform law as the reason for the bonuses.

Dot Foods’ headquarters are in Mt. Sterling.
