Chairmans Foods, LLC, a premium producer of high-quality comfort foods, announced that it will invest $13 million to create a state-of-the-art production facility in Columbus, Georgia, adding 25 new jobs.

The corporately-owned 75,000 square-foot facility is located at 1333 Cusseta Road, replacing a leased 30,000 square-foot facility on Andrews Road. The new facility is on target to be completed and fully operational by August 1, 2020. The move supports Chairmans’ commitment to Columbus, with plans to employ 110 people at the updated facility by the end of 2021.

“We are thrilled with the relocation of our Columbus production facility. While we never anticipated making the move during a pandemic, our amazing people and their resiliency have made it happen.

It’s a top-notch facility that will help us better serve our customers and provide redundancy to our multi-plant production structure,” said Lance Chambers, CEO of Chairmans Foods, LLC.

The new facility will allow Chairmans to increase capacity, streamline production, and reinforce a commitment to operating sustainably by reducing waste and energy. The relocation decision was driven by a steady growth in sales, a desire to increase capacity, and the support of Columbus leaders.

“A priority of our economic development department is to help grow our existing companies,” said Brian Sillitto, executive vice president of the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce. “By taking time to understand their business, all of our partners provided valuable assistance in support of Chairmans’ commitment to Columbus.”
