Brioschi antacid on a comeback, bringing manufacturing jobs to NY

Those of us old enough to have witnessed the restorative powers of the bubbly antacid Brioschi on parents who had "colds" after the occasional night of partying in the 1960s will be heartened by the effort being made to revive the brand. Current plans include dozens of manufacturing jobs as well as advertising and administrative positions in the Syracuse, NY, area. The location is home base for the Dessein family, who rescued the brand by purchasing it. Manufacturing operations are currently in Fair Lawn, NJ. Story
