MUNCIE — A company that has made corn dogs and pork fritters in eastern Indiana since 1961 is closing its doors, ending 87 jobs.The Star Press reports that the company founded more than 50 years ago as Al Pete Meats issued a notice to the state that the plant in Muncie was closing permanently May 18.

Memphis, Tenn.-based Monogram Comfort Foods bought the plant in 2008 and announced plans for an expansion in 2009.
