“Our facility in South Carolina remains an important asset in the ongoing evolution of our next-generation coffee production capabilities,” says Keurig Dr Pepper Chief Supply Chain Officer Roger Johnson. “Keurig Dr Pepper is proud to continue to grow in the welcoming and talent-rich community of Moore. We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the State of South Carolina in helping to facilitate our ongoing investment and hiring needs.”

The project has received South Carolina Coordinating Council for Economic Development approval for job development credits. Keurig Dr Pepper also is pursuing a revised tax break agreement with Spartanburg County, which would set the company’s property tax at 4%, as opposed to the standard corporate tax rate of 10.5%, for 40 years. Spartanburg County will receive a $1 million set-aside grant to help with Keurig’s building improvement costs.

Spartanburg County Councilman David Britt, observes, “Since coming to Spartanburg County, Keurig Dr. Pepper has been a fantastic partner, and has only enhanced our county’s status as a place where leading companies can come, succeed, and grow.”
