January 06, 2016 05:00 PM Eastern Standard Time CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Enjoy Life Foods announced plans to open a state-of-the-art, allergy-friendly manufacturing facility in Jeffersonville, Indiana, later this year. Manufacturing will transition to this new plant starting sometime in the second quarter of 2016, and the company’s current facility in Schiller Park, Illinois, will close sometime in the third quarter.
“The growth opportunity afforded by this new facility is an exciting step forward for our brand,” said Scott Mandell, CEO and Founder of Enjoy Life Foods. “We’ve outgrown capacity at our current facility. This new plant will improve overall manufacturing efficiency while providing the space for us to accelerate growth and bring our delicious allergy-friendly and gluten-free snacks to even more people.”
The new facility will create between 100 and 150 jobs in Jeffersonville, with additional opportunities as the company executes its growth plans. Current Enjoy Life Foods employees will have the opportunity to continue to work at Enjoy Life Foods at the new facility.
