Frito-Lay Plans East Fishkill, New York, Fulfillment Center

Frito-Lay, an $18 billion convenient foods division of PepsiCo, will invest $100 million to build a new 150,000 square-foot advanced fulfillment center on the iPark 84 campus in East Fishkill, New York. The project is expected to create 80 jobs.

The new facility will be one of the largest additions to the campus since the site was acquired by National Resources in 2015. Construction on the site will begin in 2022 and the facility is expected to be operational in 2024.

“We are excited to welcome Frito-Lay to our community,” said Sarah Lee, CEO of Think Dutchess Alliance for Business. “The company’s presence will support economic growth in Dutchess County for many years to come. We are eager to have one of America’s most recognizable household snack producers join our leading logistics and manufacturing facility at iPark 84.”

In 2021, Frito-Lay affirmed its commitment to increasing site investments to fulfill strong consumer demand by hiring nearly 15,000 frontline sales and supply chain employees with more than 5,000 roles actively being filled through the end of the year. Comprising 66,000 associates nationwide, Frito-Lay’s network serves customers, supports local communities, and employs more than 8,500 associates, not including franchise bottlers across New York in conjunction with its parent company, PepsiCo.

“We appreciate the continued support of Dutchess County and the Town of East Fishkill as they have been essential to this project. Frito-Lay is proud to expand its presence in New York State and become a new member of this community,” said PepsiCo Senior Director, Economic Development, Kathy Alfano.
