Flagship Food Group subsidiary Tortilla King said Thursday that an 18-acre site was purchased next to its existing production facility in Moundbridge, KS for a new Hispanic foods manufacturing site. The expansion project will support the firm’s Snack, Tortilla, and Frozen Foods business lines.

Construction is underway on phase one of the project, which will lift Tortilla King’s flour tortilla manufacturing capacity by 25%. Additional expansion phases will add production capabilities for tortilla chips, snacks, and frozen foods.

“Flagship acquired our business last year with plans to expand on our site,” Juan Guardiola, president of Tortilla King, said in a company release. “It didn’t take long for our collective team to decide that our centralized location, great people, and ample space for growth made the business case to expand our operation.”

In the future, Flagship Food Group plans to add more frozen and dry warehouse capacity to the location.

“As we build one of the leading premium CPG food companies focused on the Hispanic sector, we’re actively investing our capital to grow our facilities. We expect to significantly increase our employment numbers in Kansas and across our other sites,” said Rob Holland, Executive Chairman of Flagship Food Group, in a statement.

Tortilla King currently has 130 employees and operates five food manufacturing lines.
