Frito-Lay, the snacking division of PepsiCo, has announced the investment of $200 million to expand its production facility in Perry, Georgia.
With more than 1,000 employees, this production facility is the largest factory of the company operating in the US.
According to the sources, the investment will add two production lines to the factory, creating 120 new jobs. A strategic space will be also created, for a future manufacturing line and a warehouse building.

He added, “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”.
