Beaverton, OR-based food company Reser’s Fine Foods plans to invest $3.2 million to expand capacity at its Halifax, NC tortilla production facility and create about 80 new positions at the site over the next half-decade, the North Carolina Department of Commerce announced Thursday. 

“Our tortilla business continued to grow in the eastern United States over the past nine years, and it became clear we needed to invest to support both current and future demand in this region,” Reser’s Fine Foods Chief Executive Officer Mark Reser said in a press release. “The One North Carolina Fund grant, along with the continued support of N.C. Commerce and Economic Development Partnership of N.C., made the choice to invest here in Halifax an easy one.”

Reser’s will acquire new equipment for the plant and increase its headcount by 40% during the coming years. The company received a $250,000 performance-based grant through the One North Caroline Fund. . 

The plant in Halifax was opened in 2010 to produce Don Pancho brand Mexican foods products.  

Founded in 1950 in Cornelius, OR, Reser’s currently operates 20 facilities across the U.S. and Mexico that produce salads, baked sides and dinners, dips, fresh cut fruits and vegetables, and Mexican food products, according to information on the firm’s website.
