Frito-Lay, the snacks division of global food and drinks giant PepsiCo, is set to expand a production facility in the city of Frankfort, IN, USA, according to a report in Inside Indiana Business.
The firm is said to be investing $159 million in the upgrade to its Clinton County operations, which will see two new production lines and extra warehousing capacity added and the creation of 50 new jobs.

The new investment is set to increase the size of Frito-Lay’s operations by 210,000 sq ft.
