Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. plans to construct a new, state-of-the-art roasting and packaging facility in Spartanburg County, SC. The specialty coffee and innovative single-serve brewing systems company is projected to invest $350 million and create 500 new jobs with the project.
“The Keurig Green Mountain business continues to grow,” said Keurig Green Mountain Chief Supply Chain Officer Richard Jones. “As we plan for the future, we’re pleased to locate our newest facility in Spartanburg County to support our growth. We view the region’s talented employee base and attractive business environment as the right place to invest.”
Located in the Tyger River Industrial Park in Moore, SC, the company’s new production facility will primarily house coffee roasting and packaging for Keurig’s single-serve K-Cup® pods, along with the potential to support beverage distribution and warehousing in the future.
“We couldn’t be more excited that Keurig Green Mountain has chosen to call Spartanburg County home,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “The 500 new jobs this investment means for our people will make a big difference in the lives of South Carolinians, and I congratulate this great company on all they’ve achieved.”
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project, as well as a $3,850,000 grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the costs of site and infrastructure improvements.
“South Carolina’s favorable business environment, skilled workforce and unparalleled infrastructure offer a recipe for success,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “I’m excited to welcome Keurig to Team South Carolina, and we look forward to seeing the difference these 500 new jobs will make in the community.”
With a history dating back to 1981, Keurig’s products are utilized in 25 million homes throughout North America. More than 50 leading global coffee, tea and cocoa brands have partnered with Keurig, offering customers approximately 500 varieties.
“We welcome Keurig Green Mountain to Spartanburg County and to the booming agribusiness community in South Carolina,” said South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. “Keurig’s $350 million investment in the Upstate and our commitment to growing South Carolina’s $42 billion agribusiness industry are the perfect blend for a successful partnership.”
