Georgia Governor Nathan Deal announced today that Colorado Premium will create 190 jobs and invest $15 million in Carroll County. The company purchased an existing 130,000-square-foot building in Carrollton to be utilized as a food processing plant by the end of 2018.
Colorado Premium is based in Greeley, Colorado and is a supplier of major consumer-ready meats to U.S. retailers and restaurant chains. In addition, the company co-packs specialty items for packing companies throughout the United States.
“Colorado Premium’s decision to establish a presence in Carroll County is a testament to Georgia’s commitment to providing a business-friendly environment and the resources necessary for economic growth in today’s market. Georgia offers the freight and transportation network required to serve a broad, growing customer base. I am confident our strategic location will provide significant benefits for Colorado Premium as the company expands its presence throughout the southeast.”
Kevin LaFleur, Colorado Premium owner and president:
“We explored with various locations in the Southeast, the facility in Carrollton was selected due to the overwhelming welcome that we received from the Carroll County and State of Georgia business community. We have been growing with our customers for several years and this facility will enable that growth and provide a better geographic shipping point for these customers.”
