The Muffin Mam Eyes Laurens County, South Carolina, Production Center

The Muffin Mam, Inc., a leading manufacturer of baked goods, is launching new production operations in Laurens County, South Carolina. The company’s $18.8 million investment is projected to create 114 new jobs.

A portfolio company of Azalea Capital of Greenville, South Carolina, the Muffin Mam, Inc. is a Global Food Safety Initiative-certified wholesale bakery. The company specializes in a variety of innovative baked goods, and features a research and development department constantly testing out new recipes.

Located in the Hunter Industrial Park, The Muffin Mam, Inc. is constructing a new, 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility to further increase production. The new operations will complement the company’s existing production facility in Greenville County.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $350,000 Set Aside grant to Laurens County to assist with costs related to the project.

“Our new Laurens County facility will house high-capacity baking equipment, which will produce muffins, cupcakes, pound cakes, crème cakes and more, all sold across the United States and internationally through leading retail grocers and food service channels. The new facility will complement our existing facility in Simpsonville, S.C. and allow us to better serve our customers with new products and greater capacity,” said The Muffin Mam, Inc. CEO Dewey Armstrong.

“South Carolina has always been known for great food, and our thriving food processing and distribution industries are an extension of that. Today, we celebrate The Muffin Mam, Inc. for their decision to launch a new facility, further fueling the growth of the food distribution industry in the Palmetto State,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.

“We are grateful for The Muffin Mam, Inc.’s commitment to our county. The influx of new industry and the continued growth of the existing industries in Laurens County proves that we are a great place for business and the shared commitment that our county has with our industry partners. We look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with The Muffin Mam, Inc. and are proud for them to call Laurens County home,” said Laurens County Council Chairman David Pitts.
