Frito-Lay, a division of PepsiCo and one of the nation’s leading snack manufacturers, is gearing up for an expansion project valued at $200 million. This will expand its operations in Perry, Georgia, and will create 120 new jobs.
“For more than 30 years, the Frito-Lay Perry site has been a proud member of the Houston County community and a key contributor to the Georgia economy,” said Callum Bissett, Senior Site Director, Perry, Frito-Lay North America. “As the largest Frito-Lay manufacturing facility in the U.S., our Perry site employs more than 1,000 dedicated employees. We appreciate the support and vision of state and local officials—including the team at the Development Authority of Houston County—who have been instrumental to our continued growth.”
According to a press release, this expansion will add a manufacturing line to produce some of the company's most popular products.
The products included in this new manufacturing expansion are Frito-Lay tortilla chip products, a second line producing Baked Cheetos Puffs, strategic space for a future manufacturing line, and a warehouse building to address the new manufacturing lines and future growth.
“Frito-Lay is one of the most recognizable U.S. brands, and we are proud that that this corporate partner continues to find success in Perry, Georgia,” commented Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. “We are very grateful for the new opportunities this expansion will generate for hardworking Georgians and their families in Houston County.”
