New York waffle company to invest $34M in new Fulton County plant, create 162 jobs

A Rochester, N.Y.-based pie-maker is expanding to Atlanta — and breakfast — with an up to $34 million investment, according to Gov. Brian Kemp‘s office.

SatisPie, a take-and-bake pie producer, will build a 102,000 square-foot food processing facility in Fulton Industrial Park and create 162 new jobs, according to a news release. The facility will replace the former Kellogg plant, 5601 Bucknell Drive, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and will be upgraded in phases beginning this year.

The plant will focus on expanding Satispie’s product offerings to include waffles and pancakes for businesses across North America. At full capacity, the plant could produce 580 million waffles a year.

The release says Satispie is a sister company of Batter Up Foods, which distributes its waffles and pancakes to “the nation’s largest grocery chains.”

“Batter Up Foods is yet another American small business success story,” Kemp said. “Their decision to bring their operations to our state is a testament to our outstanding workforce and pro-business environment.”

Atlanta Business Chronicle has reached out for more information about Batter Up Foods.
