The N.K. Hurst Co. and its famous beans have plans to expand to Zionsville.

The Zionsville Plan Commission on Dec. 21 approved development plans for a 67,500-square-foot building at 10505 Bennett Parkway for the company, which plans to have 2 million pounds of beans, 200,000 pounds of sugar and more than 50,000 pounds of seasoning on site at any given time.

The plan calls for a 35-foot building on about six acres, pending a replat that is scheduled to come before the commission in January. Brian Tuohy, who spoke on behalf of N.K. Hurst Co., said construction is expected to begin in the spring with business up and running by fall.

N.K. Hurst Co. traces its roots back to 1938, when Needham King Hurst began distributing coffee, tea and sugar. Today, the fourth-generation family-owned company is famous for its HamBeens 15 Bean Soup and for being located directly south of Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis.
