Chick-Fil-A Creating 160 Jobs, $52 Million Investment in Carolina Core
Chick-fil-A’s new facility in Alamance County, scheduled to open in early 2022, is the company’s first permanent, full-scale distribution center outside of its headquarters location.
According to Chick-fil-A Supply’s senior director, the Carolina Core “provides great access to talent and is in close proximity to major transit routes, enabling us to best serve our customers: Chick-fil-A franchised operators, licensees, and their teams.”
The company’s growth is supported in part by the Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG), a performance-based incentive program that will reimburse $1.5 million over 12 years based on a percentage of new taxes generated by Chick-fil-A’s job creation, and local incentives from the City of Mebane and Alamance County totaling $930,000.
Chick-fil-A joins leading brands such as Coca-Cola, Hanesbrands and Publix that have chosen the Carolina Core for warehousing and distribution operations for its location and infrastructure, available talent and training programs, and more.
