Toyota broke ground Friday on their newest facility, a 700-acre crash test facility that'll employ 400 outside of Ann Arbor in sleepy little York Township. Toyota received a state-provided incentive package for the new facility, and well...that's about it. The news was greeted by yawns and our right hand mimicking a job of some sort...that is, until we found out that the event swag! It was hand-made goodies from an Ann Arbor chocolatier. Look at 'em — it's a little construction hat, and a shovel and look, it's like the shovel's digging and there's even a map of the 700-acre site. Isn't it adorable? We kinda wished they'd invited us — or at least sent us some chocolates.
