Gov. Tom Wolf has announced plans for the shuttered Kraft Heinz site in Lehigh County.
Keurig Dr. Pepper will open a new facility at the site in Upper Macungie Township, Wolf announced Monday.
The $220 million deal will create at least 378 new, full-time jobs over the next three years, according to a news release.
"My administration has been committed to finding the right company to utilize this site, and we are proud that Keurig Dr Pepper has agreed to expand its operations and create new jobs in the commonwealth," Wolf said in the release.
KDP will begin accepting applications later this month.
"Our new facility in Allentown and additional supply chain investments in existing facilities support our vision for providing a beverage for every consumer. We are excited to become part of the Allentown community as we continue to invest in new and exciting opportunities for growth," said Fernando Cortes, KDP chief supply chain officer, in a news release.
KDP formed with the 2018 merger of Keurig Green Mountain and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. It has dual headquarters in Massachusetts and Texas.
