The Miami Herald reports that Tropicana is moving its corporate HQ to Chicago (yaay!), causing the loss of up to 300 jobs in its old locale of Manatee County, Florida (booo!). Fortunately (for Florida), Tropicana's manufacturing and distribution facilities will remain in Florida, along with about 1,900 jobs. The move is part of parent company PepsiCo's long-term strategy to "realign its North American beverages unit." Just in case you were wondering.
