May 12, 2016 – South Carolina economic leaders have announced that Southeast Frozen Foods, a company which provides retail distribution to grocery stores and cold storage for processors, manufacturers and distributors, is expanding its operations in Calhoun County.

This new expansion will result in a capital investment of $6 million and create 30 new jobs. This is Southeast Frozen Foods’ third expansion over the last eight years, representing more than $20 million in cumulative capital investments and more than 100 jobs created.

Located on 17 acres in Gaston, Southeast Frozen Foods distributes frozen and refrigerated foods to hundreds of retail grocery stores and provides cold storage services to processors and manufacturers of quality South Carolina food products. 

With this project, the company will be expanding the total square footage at its Gaston facility to more than 200,000 sq. ft. Hiring for the new positions is expected to begin this summer.

 “We’re proud to announce yet another expansion and are proud to be a part of this community. We’d like to thank the Department of Commerce and Calhoun County for their continued commitment throughout this process,” said Southeast Frozen Foods President and CEO Rich Bauer in confirming the expansion.

“Southeast Frozen Foods’ commitment to both the local community in Gaston and our state as a whole is something we are extremely proud of. This investment of $6 million, and the 30 new jobs it means for Calhoun County, is a huge win for Team South Carolina, and we congratulate Southeast Frozen Foods on their continued success there,” said Gov. Nikki Haley, in a press release today.
