Factor Establishes Goodyear, Arizona, Production Center

Ready-to-eat meal delivery service Factor established a new production center in Goodyear, Arizona. The project is expected to create more than 800 jobs.

The new 300,100-square-foot facility will serve as the second largest industrial kitchen in the U.S.

“Ready-to-eat meals continue to be one of the fastest growing segments in the U.S., and I'm proud that Factor has become the market leader in this space, providing customers across the U.S. with convenient, high-quality meals,” said Uwe Voss, CEO, HelloFresh U.S. “The addition of the Goodyear facility will allow us to increase capacity, serve more customers, and drive further significant growth to our business, all while o?ering a first class service. We're grateful for the partnership with the city of Goodyear and look forward to continuing to support the local community.”

Acquired by HelloFresh in 2020, Factor specializes in providing fresh, ready-to-eat meals with a focus on health and wellness. In addition to the U.S., the service is now available in Canada, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

“Today’s grand opening marks an exciting expansion for Factor and HelloFresh,” noted Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “We are proud that an industry leader like Factor has selected Goodyear for its new food production facility, bolstering Goodyear’s growing manufacturing ecosystem while creating hundreds of quality jobs.”

“The expansion of Factor into Goodyear is yet another milestone showcasing the region's continued growth as a critical western logistics hub," added Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) President & CEO Chris Camacho. "We're pleased to welcome the company's environmentally responsible facility to Greater Phoenix and applaud their commitment to supporting the community."
