The company will expand at 1644 Rock Mountain Boulevard by more than 260,000 square feet. The advanced manufacturing plant will increase production five-fold by 2025, making it one of the largest manufacturing facilities in the company portfolio.
“This expansion will greatly increase PBNA’s production serving nearby Atlanta and the wider Georgia region to continue the growth of our business and customers in the area,” said Karen Jordan, Chief Supply Chain Officer, PBNA. “We are proud to increase our footprint locally as a supplier, producer, and employer, bringing with us our gender equity and sustainability mission to create positive change.”
According to state officials, this announcement adds to the July 2020, $200 million investment by PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division in the City of Perry that resulted in 240 new jobs. In the span of two years, PepsiCo, through its operating subsidiaries, has committed $460 million of capital in the State of Georgia.
“Georgia’s dedication to providing the tools and resources for specialized workforce training continues to give the state a competitive advantage in attracting companies to create jobs and opportunities here,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “It’s a pleasure to witness PepsiCo’s growth in Georgia over the last two years, and I look forward to continuing the state’s successful partnership with their team.”
“The competitive landscape for economic development projects extends far and wide in Georgia,” said DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond. “We are delighted that PBNA has decided to deepen the roots they have planted here in DeKalb County. We are proud to be a part of this exciting public/private partnership that will spur job creation and economic growth.”
