Fresh-prepared meal delivery service Freshly Inc. is more than doubling their planned workforce in Georgia and investing $52 million in expanding to Clayton County. The new distribution facility will create 665 jobs in Ellenwood, Ga.
This announcement comes on the heels of Freshly opening their first Southeastern U.S. distribution facility in Cobb County in early 2021. Freshly’s additional Georgia distribution facility will double the company’s workforce and help Freshly continue to meet increasing customer demand.
“Over the past year, Freshly has experienced substantial growth as consumer demand continues to grow for convenient and nutritious meal options,” said Mike Wystrach, Freshly Founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to expand Freshly’s footprint and operations in Georgia. Tapping into Clayton County’s tremendous pool of talent, this second facility will allow us to increase capacity for efficient assembly and distribution of our chef-prepared meals.”
Freshly is a New York-based prepared meal delivery company that delivers throughout the United States. The company ships one million meals per week and delivers to the contiguous United States. In 2020, Freshly was acquired by Nestlé for 1.5 billion.
“We are pleased by Freshly’s fast-paced growth in metro Atlanta to meet the food needs of our rapidly growing population, first with their location in Cobb County and now with this new facility in Clayton County,” said Katie Kirkpatrick, President and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Congratulations to Freshly on their continued business success and to our economic development partners who supported this investment that will create economic opportunity for the residents of metro Atlanta.”
