Keurig Dr Pepper, the soft drinks and coffee firm, has announced plans to invest $100 million to expand its coffee roasting facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, generating more than 250 new jobs by 2027.
The facility, which was opened two years ago with an initial $380 million investment, is focused on roasting and packaging coffee for K-Cup pods designed for Keurig brewers.
Commenting on the move, Keurig Dr Pepper chief supply chain officer Roger Johnson said: “Our facility in South Carolina remains an important asset in the ongoing evolution of our next-generation coffee production capabilities. Keurig Dr Pepper is proud to continue to grow in the welcoming and talent-rich community of Moore”.
With the latest investment, the facility has expanded to just over 708,000 sq ft.
