Tony’s Tamales Expands Flora, Mississippi, Operations Complex
The expansion will enable the company to meet an increase in demand and fulfill two newly secured contracts with Whole Foods and Publix.
“The Tony’s Tamales family would like to extend our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the continued support. We look forward to a prosperous working relationship,” Tony’s Tamales Owner Reginald Mosely noted.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for infrastructure improvements. The town of Flora also is assisting with the project.
“MDA is proud to support Tony’s Tamales as the company increases its presence in Central Mississippi by opening a new production facility to meet an increase in consumer demand. This expansion is a great indicator of the long-term growth and success Mississippi-based businesses enjoy for many years. We appreciate our partners at the town of Flora and the Madison County Economic Development Authority for working with MDA to bring this project full-circle,” MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp said.
According to state officials, Tony’s Tamales is a homegrown Mississippi company that started in 1982 as a restaurant in Jackson, the result of owner Robert Mosley’s desire to bring his tamales to the state capital. The company has since grown, selling to retailers across the U.S.
