Turkey Hill, a leading manufacturer and distributor of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks, reported it will support recent and continued growth through investments in its manufacturing operations and an increase in new hiring efforts at its facility in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Founded in 1931 and located in the rich farming country of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Turkey Hill was acquired by an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital from The Kroger Co. in April 2019. Now a standalone company, Turkey Hill said it is strategically focused on geographic expansion and new product innovation to support increasing consumer demand.
"Turkey Hill is experiencing strong and growing consumer demand nationwide for its broad assortment of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks. We as a company are focused on providing our consumers with high quality, authentic products with category-leading flavor variety," said John Cox, CEO of Turkey Hill.
To support continued growth, the Company has announced an investment plan that will bolster its manufacturing operations. The Company's existing footprint already includes one of the largest production facilities of ice cream and refrigerated drinks in the country – a state-of-the-art facility powered by 100% renewable energy and situated on 72+ acres along the Susquehanna River.
Turkey Hill's investment plan includes capacity expansion, investments in existing lines to provide the latest technology and manufacturing capabilities, and facility renovations and enhancements to support its associates.
Turkey Hill said its investment plan reflects the Company's continued commitment to Lancaster County and the surrounding community, and its goal of attracting highly-qualified and talented associates to join its team. The Company is increasing its hiring efforts both in Eastern Pennsylvania and nationwide and is actively looking for skilled associates for immediate hire.
