Craft coffee supplier Charleston Coffee Roasters is launching a $2.2 million project to expand and increase the capacity of its Charleston, SC coffee roasting facility, the South Carolina Department of Commerce announced in a recent release.
The investment in the Stall Road site will be used to boost production in response to growing demand. 21,600 sq ft of space will be added to the structure that will contain new roasters, grinders, and packaging solutions.
“Charleston, SC is our home. The community has been incredibly supportive since we founded Charleston Coffee Roasters 16 years ago. Working with the South Carolina Department of Commerce and Charleston County Economic Development, this next stage of our strategic growth plan enables us to hire more employees, continue our aggressive expansion, increase our distribution across more states and more retailers, and create new gourmet coffee roasts for our customers to enjoy,” said the firm’s president, Lowell D. Grosse, in a statement.
28 new jobs will be created as a result of the expansion. Work on the site is expected to reach completion next summer.
