Sweetening The Upstate
Milo’s Tea Company (Milo’s), a leading beverage company, today announced plans to establish its first South Carolina operations in Spartanburg County. The company’s $130 million investment will create 103 new jobs.
Located at Park 290 at Interstate 26 in Moore, the initial design of Milo’s Spartanburg County operations includes a new 110,000-square-foot plant, which will accommodate brewing and bottling operations for ready-to-drink beverages. The Spartanburg County facility will be the company’s fourth plant in the United States.
“South Carolina was the optimal location to efficiently serve our customers up and down the East Coast. Like our selection journey for our Oklahoma facility, we immediately felt at home in the Spartanburg area as we received a warm welcome from state and local community partners. South Carolina and Spartanburg County in particular proved to be the right ecosystem to help us advance our people-first culture by offering an excellent standard of living for our associates and robust workforce development resources to drive economic prosperity not only for our people, but also for the region.” – Milo’s Tea Company Chief Executive Officer Tricia Wallwork
“South Carolina’s incredible workforce and business-friendly climate provide the perfect ingredients for Milo’s Tea Company’s new operations. We welcome this family-owned company to Spartanburg County and look forward to the success they will brew in our state.” – Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III
