BUFFALO, N.Y. - The City of Buffalo will keep smelling like Cheerios for years to come.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says General Mills is getting $500,000 dollars from the state and $500,000 in grant money from the New York Power Authority as it makes a $25 million investment in its Buffalo facility.

That investment means the company's 417 jobs will stay put as General Mills increases its cereal production with the addition of the Chex brand lines.
