Snack manufacturer Pretzels has unveiled plans for a new production facility inside of VenturePark in Lawrence, Kansas.
The Indiana-headquartered company produces a range of flavoured and stuffed pretzels for private label and national brands, as well as extruded snack products.
Pretzels – a portfolio company of an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital – also sells pretzels under the Harvest Road brand.
According to Pretzels, the new 150,000-square-foot facility in Lawrence will increase its capacity across a range of products and formats. The site is expected to be operational in late 2021.
The company also says that its expansion into the Kansas City region will allow it to better serve markets to the west and south of the US.
“We are very excited to expand our production footprint and to continue serving our customers with superior capabilities and geographic reach,” said Greg Pearson, CEO of Pretzels.
“This new facility exemplifies Pretzels’ commitment to support the growth of our diverse and expanding customer base with industry-leading quality and efficiency across a variety of traditional and innovative products.”
Laura Kelly, Governor of the state of Kansas, added: “This project will create good-paying jobs and generate a significant investment for Kansas. My administration is committed to rebuilding our state’s foundation by encouraging businesses like Pretzels to choose Kansas.”
