Groundbreaking Ceremony Held for Ken’s Foods Expansion

On Wednesday, May 26, 2021, executives from Ken’s Foods along with State and local officials broke ground on the company’s $103 million expansion of their Henry County campus.  This expansion will allow Ken’s Foods, which already serves as one of the largest employers in Henry County, to create 70 new jobs in addition to retaining over 500 existing local jobs.

Renowned for its high-quality dressings, sauces, and marinades, Ken’s Foods currently produces and packages over 400 varieties of condiments as well as numerous custom dressings for local businesses and other well-known food companies.  Ken’s Foods, which is still family-owned and operated, continues to experience outstanding growth as the future of flavor obsession promises to be delightfully delicious.

Since 1997, Ken’s Foods has continually made sizeable investments in its Georgia operations.  This expansion, which is one of the company’s largest in recent years, will include new production lines and building upgrades to its manufacturing facility as well as the relocation of its support facility operations to a 343,625-square-foot space in Midland Industrial Park.  The relocation will eliminate over 40 truck moves a day on the GA 155 corridor.

The 70 new positions include food processing, manufacturing, and distribution, along with careers in management and supervision.  Individuals interested in opportunities with Ken’s Foods are encouraged to visit for additional information.
