Hostess Brands is moving to Edgerton with a 765,000 square foot distribution center that will produce over 30,000 pallets and 225,000 cases of products during peak times. The facility will bring 220 new jobs to the area while reaching consumers faster and reducing transportation costs.
The new distribution center will be closer to Hostess’ largest bakery in Emporia, Kansas, and is more centrally located in the United States.
“Hostess is an incredible company and we’re thrilled with their decision to expand their presence in Kansas,” said Kansas Secretary of Commerce, David Toland. “Their expansion underscores what so many companies within the food industry already know: that Kansas, with its strong, dedicated workforce and its unrivaled central location, is the perfect place for any business looking to create high-quality products and export them anywhere across the country or around the world.”
