Brakebush Brothers Creating 800 Jobs In Texas

The family-owned chicken products company will build a new processing plant in Greenville, TX with help from a Texas Enterprise Fund grant.

After a year-long, multi-site search, Brakebush Brothers, Inc. has decided to build a new 315,000-square-foot food processing plant in Greenville, TX. The company’s new facility is expected to create over 800 jobs in Greenville’s Park West industrial park and will be the second Texas location for Brakebush Brothers.

“After a multi-state search, we are excited about what Texas and Greenville has to offer Brakebush Brothers,” said Carey Brakebush, Vice President of Facilities and Transportation. “The pro-business environment, the strength of the labor force and the quality of the site on which we will build this state-of-the-art processing facility all contributed to our decision to choose Greenville. Brakebush looks forward to expanding its operations in Texas and building a partnership with Greenville and Hunt County for decades to come.”

“Greenville has been targeting great companies like these to add to our growing industrial base. This company will assist with our continuing goal of providing quality jobs for our citizens, adding industrial property value growth, and more industrial customers for our city owned electric utility, GEUS,” said Greenville Mayor David Dreiling.

A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant offer of $780,000 has been offered to the company. The state uses the  TEF as a final incentive tool for projects that offer significant projected job creation and capital investment and where a single Texas site is competing with another viable out-of-state option. Since its inception in 2004, the TEF has awarded over 100 grants totaling more than $500 million across a wide variety of industries and projects.
