Gov. Greg Abbott’s office today announced that Golden State Foods Corp. will be opening a new manufacturing and distribution facility for its Liquid Products Division in Burleson.

A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant offer of $900,000 has been extended to Golden State Foods contingent upon the company investing more than $19 million and creating 150 new jobs in Texas. The entire project, which will involve new construction and state-of-the-art design and build out, is projected to exceed $70 million. Golden State’s southwest operations will be located in Burleson’s Highpoint Business Park.

Irvine, California-based Golden State Foods is privately held and one of the largest diversified suppliers to the quick service restaurant and retail industries. The company services more than 125,000 restaurants and stores on five continents from its 50 locations. Founded in 1947, one of the company’s biggest customers since its early days has been McDonald’s Corp.

“We are incredibly excited that Golden State Foods selected Burleson as the location of their new 160,000 square-foot facility,” said Burleson Mayor Ken Shetter. “It is great news that quality jobs are coming to Burleson, and the company bringing those jobs has a long history of exhibiting stellar corporate values. Golden State Foods will become a vital piece of Highpoint Business Park, continuing to solidify Burleson as a city of choice for thriving businesses considering growth or expansion.”

John Maguire, GSF’s vice president of liquid products North America, said the company was thrilled to be coming to Burleson. “There were many options in the Southwest, but Burleson was the best choice for us. The Burleson team were such great partners with their professionalism, compelling economic incentive package, investments in the local work force and overall commitment to the community that they rapidly became our preferred choice. We’re looking forward to becoming an active part of this fine community.”
