Milo's Tea Company Plans Moore, South Carolina, Production Plant

Milo's Tea Company, a leading beverage company, will establish operations in Moore, South Carolina. The $130 million project is expected to create 103 jobs in Spartanburg County.

The investment includes a new 110,000-square-foot plant, which will accommodate brewing and bottling operations for ready-to-drink beverages. The facility will be the company’s fourth plant in the U.S. Operations are scheduled to be online by the end of 2024.

“South Carolina was the optimal location to efficiently serve our customers up and down the East Coast. Like our selection journey for our Oklahoma facility, we immediately felt at home in the Spartanburg area as we received a warm welcome from state and local community partners. South Carolina and Spartanburg County in particular proved to be the right ecosystem to help us advance our people-first culture by offering an excellent standard of living for our associates and robust workforce development resources to drive economic prosperity not only for our people, but also for the region,” Milo’s Tea Company Chief Executive Officer Tricia Wallwork said.

As an incentive the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project.

“South Carolina’s incredible workforce and business-friendly climate provide the perfect ingredients for Milo's Tea Company's new operations. We welcome this family-owned company to Spartanburg County and look forward to the success they will brew in our state,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

Founded in 1946, Milo’s is a family-owned beverage company that provides a variety of flavored teas and beverages to customers across the nation. Milo’s is a leading refrigerated tea brand and one of the fastest growing lemonade brands in America.

“Every time a popular, established brand brings operations to Spartanburg County, it grows our presence in the region and the country, and just goes to further prove how good a place Spartanburg County is to do business. We are excited to welcome Milo’s to Spartanburg County and eager to have some of the first tea brewed at their facility,” Spartanburg County Councilman and Economic Development Committee Chairman David Britt added.
