260,000-sq.-ft. expansion will add 136 jobs by 2025.

PepsiCo Beverages North America will invest $260 million to expand its Tucker, Ga., manufacturing facility, according to an announcement from Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp's office. The expansion will create at least 136 full-time jobs.

PBNA will expand the facility by more than 260,000 sq. ft., allowing a five-fold increase in production by 2025, making it one of the largest manufacturing facilities in the company.

Apparently there were incentives from the Georgia Dept. of Economic Development, Decide DeKalb Development Authority, DeKalb County, the City of Tucker, Metro Atlanta Chamber, Georgia Quick Start and Georgia Power.

This investment adds to the $200 million investment by PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division in the City of Perry that resulted in 240 new jobs, announced in July 2020.
