US: PepsiCo to close Dallas snack facility
PepsiCo consolidates manufacturing footprint
PepsiCo has confirmed that it plans to close its Dallas-based snack production facility and warehouse operations in a bid to "eliminate redundancy and increase operating efficiencies".
The site, which began production in 1984, manufactured Doritos, Cheetos and Chester's branded products. Production will "transfer to other manufacturing sites across the US", a spokesperson said. Production will cease in August.
"The closing of our Dallas baked snacks facility and the Dallas metro warehouse will require us to make changes with some positions and eliminate positions in the Dallas Fort Worth area (approximately 0.3% of our US workforce). This transition will start immediately," the spokesperson said.
"Ultimately these steps position us for continued healthy, sustainable growth. We believe the actions we're taking are necessary for the long-term health of our business."
