NASHVILLE, TENN. — Artisan specialty foods producer Alfresco Pasta Brand, LLC has introduced plans to make investments $3.8 million to expand and relocate its operations to Bells, Tenn., from Nashville.
Founded in 2000, Alfresco Pasta focuses on handcrafted contemporary pasta, sauces, pizza dough and ready meals. The firm’s prospects embrace eating places, resorts and high-end foodservice prospects. Alfresco has greater than 10 warehouses serving 40 states.
“We appreciate the tremendous support we’ve gotten from TNECD and other groups within Crockett County, and we love the solid work force and strong shipping lanes for transportation that the area offers,” mentioned Chris Grisson, president of Alfresco Pasta. “Moving to our new location in Bells will enable Alfresco Pasta to increase our production capacity by over six times our current rate, helping us meet the growing demand for our high-end product line, including with large national accounts. It also gives us the ability to expand our offering with innovative new products to keep up with the rising demand for fresh, healthy foods.”
Alfresco Pasta mentioned it expects the plant to be operational by the second quarter of 2022. The plant enlargement will add 58 new jobs.
