The geographic location of Springfield and available manufacturing initially peaked the interest of a Toronto-based snack food company that specializes in Indian treats.

But, it was the Springfield community that convinced the company to open its first manufacturing facility in the U.S. in the city, said Shalini Sheth, Director of Operations for Surati Sweet Mart, Ltd.

Wittenberg University students encouraged to connect with Springfield community
As Wittenberg University students head back to campus to kick off the 2021-22 school year, they’ll also be encouraged to find ways to become engaged in the City of Springfield as a whole.

With Wittenberg’s campus being just a short five minute walk from Downtown Springfield, the opportunities for students to enjoy the shopping, dining, fun and events are endless, says John Kelly, downtown events programmer for the Greater Springfield Partnership.
