Clark Beverage Group Plans Madison County, Mississippi, Operations-Distribution Center

Clark Beverage Group, a leading distributor of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages like Coca-Cola, plans to expand its operations in Madison County, Mississippi. The $100 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.

The investment includes the addition of a new sales and distribution facility, as well as the acquisition of more equipment to better serve the company’s consumers of Mississippi and neighboring states. Operations are scheduled for 2025.

“This $100 million investment and expansion into the Madison County Mega Site represents Clark Beverage Group’s commitment to our employees and their families for growth, as well as our strong relationship with our consumers and communities which we serve every day in Mississippi,” Ken Skutnik, Clark Beverage Group Chief Operating Officer said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance in support of the project through the Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive, or MFLEX. Madison County also is assisting with the project.

“MDA is proud to support Clark Beverage Group’s new location at the Madison County Mega Site, which is certainly an economic boost for the area and entire region. But most important is the fact that 30 new opportunities are being created that will positively impact Clark Beverage’s new employees and their families now and well into the future,” MDA Deputy Executive Director Laura Hipp noted.

Clark Beverage Group, a fourth-generation family-owned bottler, is headquartered in Kentucky and started distributing Coca-Cola in 1903. The company offers a diverse group of national and international brands of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages in Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Mississippi and Tennessee and employs approximately 950 people across the five states.
