That’s How We Roll, LLC, a baked dessert snacks manufacturer, will expand its operations to York County, PA creating 50 new jobs. The company, currently based in northern New Jersey, has outgrown its current facility and will expand its operations to Springettsbury Township.
“As our company continues its trajectory with some of America’s fastest growing snack brands, it is critical for us to invest in a city that has the right infrastructure, talent, and leadership,” said That’s How We Roll CEO Samuel Kestenbaum. “Springettsbury Township contains these important elements, and we expect that it will be an exceptional place to grow our business. We are excited to expand our production here. We’re thrilled to be supporting local equipment manufacturers and suppliers, engaging local engineers and tradesmen, and joining this business community.”
That’s How We Roll’s expansion into York County will establish a new baked snack manufacturing operation, increase production capacity and product offerings, and meet current and future consumer demand. The total project will cost $4.4 million and will include the purchase of new equipment and building renovations. The company manufactures baked snacks using simple, wholesome ingredients, free of GMO, corn syrups, RBGH, and artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
“Pennsylvania is known across the country for its food manufacturing, and there’s no better home for a snack food company than York County,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “That’s How We Roll will inject jobs and revenue into the local economy through an established product line and will serve as a great addition to our state’s food manufacturing lineup.”
To assist with the site selection search, the company engaged New Jersey-based Atlas Insight, LLC. Managing Partner Brian Corde noted, “The York County region has a rich history of food production, and this, combined with a strong business climate full of energy, direction and a strong manufacturing workforce, makes this an excellent location choice.”
That’s How We Roll received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $200,000 Pennsylvania First grant and $54,000 in funding for job training through the WEDnet PA program. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team.
“York County is thrilled to welcome That’s How We Roll, makers of ParmCrisps Snacks and THINSTERS Cookies, to the community,” said Kevin J. Schreiber, President & CEO, York County Economic Alliance. “The company’s expansion is a testament to York County’s strong food processing and machinery sector and solidifies our title as Snack Food Capital of the World.”
