Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown, Pasta Town U.S.A.

Linglestown, Pasta Town U.S.A.

What things do you associate with the quaint village of Linglestown? Most likely the flagpole, St. Thomas Roasters, Chocolate Cafe, the Eagle and pasta come to mind.

Wait a Dauphin County minute. Did I just punch out "pasta" on my crusty keyboard?

It's true. There’s an office park located in the outskirts of Linglestown along Route 22 that is home to New World Pasta Company, North America’s leading marketer and supplier of branded dry pasta and noodles.

Next time you see a box of San Giorgio or Ronzoni pasta at your favorite grocery store, think Linglestown.

Please, don’t waste your weekend looking for a pasta plant in the Linglestown area. The company is only headquartered here.

I know very little about the company beyond today’s announcement of a new CEO being hired, and that it filed for bankruptcy in 2004.

But, if this company makes it big, the village of Linglestown could become another Hershey. Imagine having in our backyard Pastaland Amusement Park, Pasta Hotel & County Club, Pasta Performing Center, and, of course, Pasta Noodles pro hockey team.

Go Noodles!

I believe The Hershey Company used to own it, but spun it off not too long before it declared bankruptcy in 2004 (maybe a few years?). They used to have a San Giorgio stage in what was the Wok-N-Roll at Hersheypark. It was also where Subway restaurant used to be in Minetown.
