JTM Foods Establishes Wichita, Kansas, Production Complex
The facility which will be the new home of JJ’s Snack Pies, will provide increased production capacity and improve the logistics for Southern, Southwest, and West Coast markets. The expansion is the company’s first outside of Pennsylvania.
“The strong public/private partnerships here, linking government, business, academic, and community interests together convinced us that Wichita was the ‘Best Choice’ for JTM’s future expansion,” said Monty Pooley, JTM Foods President and CEO.”
The ICT21 Industrial District is located on formerly blighted land that has 560,000 square feet of industrial space under construction through the development group led by Ron and Marty Cornejo.
“JTM Foods will be a great addition that will help bolster the food processing industry in Wichita and add to our unrivaled strength statewide,” said Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland. “The Kansas Framework for Growth places a heavy emphasis on growing food manufacturing in our state, and today’s announcement by JTM is yet another example of our state’s unparalleled strengths rising to meet new opportunities for future growth.”
JTM Food Group specializes in providing menu solutions that deliver superior results to the Foodservice Industry. The company serves thousands of schools, restaurants, military and government organizations, and food distributors and retailers throughout the country and abroad.
“The City of Wichita’s speculative warehouse abatement policy has been especially critical for our ability to recruit new companies,” said Jeff Fluhr, President of Greater Wichita Partnership. “Our elected leaders’ visionary leadership has brought results with companies choosing Wichita for their investment, jobs, and opportunities.”
