Governor McDonnell Announces 800 New Jobs in Isle of Wight County –Green Mountain Coffee Roasters to invest $180 million in first Virginia operation

imageGovernor Bob McDonnell today announced that Vermont-based Green Mountain Coffee Roasters , a leader in specialty coffee and coffeemakers, will establish a production and distribution facility in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. The company will invest $180 million over the initial five-years of the facility’s operations. GMCR has agreed to purchase a 330,000-square-foot building on a 64 acre parcel of land in Isle of Wight County, where it expects to house coffee roasting, grinding, flavoring, and packaging of its single-serve portion packs for its Keurig® Single-Cup Brewing System. Within five years, it is estimated the new facility will have as many as 800 employees.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Isle of Wight County to secure the project for Virginia. The Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance was instrumental in the project. Governor McDonnell approved a $4 million grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Isle of Wight County with the project. GMCR may be eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. In addition, through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the Company’s recruitment and training activities.          

"This announcement is confirmation to the citizens of Isle of Wight that our investments in real estate and infrastructure for the Shirley T. Holland Intermodal Park are beginning to pay off as we welcome significant advanced manufacturing projects to our community," said Isle of Wight County Chairman Thomas J. Wright, III. "The rewards will be realized for generations to come."
