Blue Rooster To Open Poultry Processing Operation in Warren, Arkansas
Blue Rooster’s operation will primarily focus on deboning poultry for Ozark Mountain Poultry, a family-owned company based in Rogers, Arkansas. OMP produces more than 3 million pounds of antibiotic free poultry per week for the restaurant industry and its products are also available at a variety of grocery retailers throughout the country through its consumer based brand Forester Farmer’s Market.
“Blue Blue Rooster is leasing the former H&L facility through an agreement with the Arkansas Development Finance Authority. “ADFA is excited about Blue Rooster’s and OMP’s commitment to Warren and Bradley County,” said Gene Eagle, ADFA President.
Rooster’s decision to locate a poultry facility in Warren is great news for Southern Arkansas,” Governor Mike Beebe said. “We appreciate the City of Warren, the Arkansas Development Finance Authority and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission for working together to make this project possible.”
OMP will also be a majority owner of the newly formed company. Ronnie Hightower will serve as plant manager of the new facility and Jeff Coffman will be Facilities Manager. Hightower and Coffman are also part owners of Blue Rooster.
