Keurig Dr Pepper Expands Moore, South Carolina, Roasting-Manufacturing Complex
The investment is an extension of a tiered, phased build of the facility. The current location is focused on coffee roasting and packaging for K-Cup pods for use in Keurig brewers.
“Our facility in South Carolina remains an important asset in the ongoing evolution of our next-generation coffee production capabilities. Keurig Dr Pepper is proud to continue to grow in the welcoming and talent-rich community of Moore. We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the State of South Carolina in helping to facilitate our ongoing investment and hiring needs,” Keurig Dr Pepper Chief Supply Chain Officer Roger Johnson said.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $1 million Set-Aside grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the costs of building improvements.
“Keurig Dr Pepper is known for some of the most iconic beverage brands. By investing in technology at its Spartanburg County operation, the company can continue to offer the quality beverages its customers have come to expect while also creating opportunities throughout South Carolina,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
Keurig Dr Pepper Inc., formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Keurig Green Mountain, is a publicly traded American beverage and coffeemaker conglomerate with headquarters in Burlington, Massachusetts and Frisco, Texas. The company was formed in 2018 with the merger of Keurig Green Mountain and Dr Pepper Snapple Group (formerly Dr. Pepper/7up Inc.).
"Since coming to Spartanburg County, Keurig Dr Pepper has been a fantastic partner, and has only enhanced our county’s status as a place where leading companies can come, succeed and grow. As Chairman of the Economic Development Committee, we are grateful for Keurig Dr Pepper’s decision to come here, and we are very proud of their success. Their future is bright,” Spartanburg County Council Vice Chairman and Economic Development Committee Chairman David Britt added.
