Expansion at Frito-Lay's Perry, GA, facility is expected to create 120 new jobs. The company will install manufacturing lines for various snack products, including tortilla chips and Baked Cheetos Puffs.

Snack manufacturer Frito-Lay is preparing to kick off a $200 million expansion project at its Perry, GA plant to add several new production lines, Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced in a release Wednesday. The investment is expected to create 120 new jobs.


“For more than 30 years, the Frito-Lay Perry site has been a proud member of the Houston County community and a key contributor to the Georgia economy,” said Callum Bisset, senior site director, Perry, Frito-Lay North America, in a statement. “As the largest Frito-Lay manufacturing facility in the US, our Perry site employees more than 1,000 dedicated employees. We appreciate the support and vision of state and local officials.”

During the project, Frito-Lay will add a new manufacturing line for Frito-Lay tortilla chip products, a second line for Baked Cheetos Puffs, and create space for a future manufacturing line and a warehouse building. 

“Frito-Lay is one of the most recognizable US brands, and we are proud that this corporate partner continues to find success in Perry, GA,” Gov. Kemp said.
