Bigelow Tea Co is relocating soon to Right to Work Jeffersontown, Kentucky. This will also allow them to expand, being able to produce more tea for its consumers. In order to do this, they are investing $53 million toward the project. This will also create 31 new jobs for the area. So this is good news for tea-lovers, workers, and the overall economy!
From Area Development Magazine:
“The Bigelow family and all our team members are proud of our plan to build a state-of-the-art facility in Louisville. […] Over the next few years, we will be committing over $50 million to create an extraordinary plant that will take us forward for decades to come. We would like to thank the Commonwealth of Kentucky, City of Louisville, and the City of Jeffersontown for providing the support necessary to help us finalize the purchase of a 20-acre property near our existing facility that has operated in Jeffersontown for almost 30 years. This is a very exciting time for our family business.” […]
“Congratulations to Bigelow Tea on the company’s expansion in Jefferson County. […]This project is the latest example of Kentucky’s food, beverage and agritech sector growing rapidly and helping to create quality job opportunities for Kentucky residents.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
