PepsiCo division Frito-Lay is dedicating $70 million to add a new snack production line and expand a warehouse at its Frankfort, IN manufacturing plant, the City of Frankfort, IN announced in a release Monday. The project is expected to create 45 new jobs.

“Frito-Lay’s continued financial investment in Frankfort, and their desire to create more jobs in our economy, reflects a dedication to growth and success while strengthening our local economy,” Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes said in a statement.

The company currently employs over 1100 workers at two manufacturing facilities in Frankfort. 17 snack production lines are located in the Indiana community. 

Work on the expansion is slated to commence next month. The project will be completed during the spring of 2021, television news station WLFI reported.

In July 2018, Frito-Lay revealed plans to invest $159 million in an expansion project at both of its manufacturing facilities in Frankfort. The company said it intended to add two new production lines and additional warehouse space.
