John Soules Foods announced plans to expand its Tyler, Texas, headquarters facility.

The plans include an additional production line and upgrading a current production line within the facility to support ongoing organic sales growth.

The $25 million investment will increase production capacity by 35 million pounds per year. The new production line is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year, and will create 50 new jobs.

“We are excited to announce another line expansion to our Tyler, Texas, facility. The addition is in response to our growing customer base and its need for safe, high-quality poultry and beef items. Just like our other production lines, this line will include the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment providing the safe and consistent items our customers have grown to expect from John Soules Foods,” says John Soules Jr., co-CEO.
