C. J. Foods, the leading contract manufacturer of all-natural, super premium dry pet foods and treats, will open an executive office in the KC Animal Health Corridor in Kansas City, Kansas.

“After we reviewed data on both KC and Omaha, it was determined that KC has a greater ability to attract the type of talent that we need as we continue our explosive growth in the coming years,” said Tod Morgan, President & CEO of C. J. Foods. “It offered excellent schools, entertainment, housing and the city’s growth in the downtown area has helped make it a more attractive city in which to relocate.”

KCADC was proud to work with a number of regional partners in attracting C. J. Foods to the region including the State of Kansas, Copaken Brooks, KCP&L, RSM and Covenant Consulting.

“C. J. Foods’ expansion is the perfect addition to the region which is home to the KC Animal Health Corridor,” said Tim Cowden, President & CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “Kansas City is the best place for this company to plant roots and recruit high level talent.”
