Keurig Dr Pepper plans to invest $100 million to further develop its coffee roasting and manufacturing facility in Spartanburg County, SC. 

The project is an extension of a tiered, phased build of the facility which broke ground in 2019, according to SC Governor Harry McMaster's website. While the COVID-19 pandemic altered the project timeline, KDP has continually upgraded and invested in its production, warehousing and distribution capabilities since that time.

KDP's Spartanburg County location is exclusively focused on coffee roasting and packaging for K-Cup pods for Keurig brewers. The facility is one of the largest LEED-certified manufacturing facilities in the world.

“Our facility in South Carolina remains an important asset in the ongoing evolution of our next-generation coffee production capabilities. Keurig Dr Pepper is proud to continue to grow in the welcoming and talent-rich community of Moore. We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the State of South Carolina in helping to facilitate our ongoing investment and hiring needs,” said Roger Johnson, chief supply chain officer, Keurig Dr Pepper.

The facility expansion is expected to be completed by 2027 and create 250 jobs, in addition to the $380 million previously invested and 155 jobs currently at this location. New jobs will be related to KDP’s manufacturing and distribution operations. 

“Keurig Dr Pepper’s expansion of its Spartanburg County facility exemplifies how South Carolina’s strong economic climate supports continued development. Our state is grateful to be home to one of Keurig Dr Pepper’s six US coffee roasting facilities and for the 250 additional jobs this project provides,” said Gov. McMaster.
