Food products manufacturer King’s Hawaiian is preparing to launch an $85 million expansion project at its location in Oakwood, GA. Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced Tuesday that the company is building a new 150,000-sq-ft bakery across the street from its existing bread production plant in the Oakwood South Industrial Park.
“Georgia has been an important part of King’s Hawaiian for more than a decade, and we are excited to expand our ohana by creating more than 160 new jobs in Hall County,” the firm’s CEO, Mark Taira, said in a release. “Our partnerships with leaders in food science, manufacturing, and robotics from around the State of Georgia have been critical to King’s Hawaiian’s growth. A talented workforce and a supportive business environment make Hall County the perfect place to increase our investment in the state.”
The investment will enable the company to increase its production capacity and create space to accommodate future growth. Work on the facility is expected to reach completion in fall 2023. Positions will be available in maintenance, management, food safety, and quality control.
King’s Hawaiian established operations in Hall County in 2010. Its existing plant operates on a 24/7 schedule.
