Frito-Lay has acquired land in East Fishkill, New York. The company says they will invest $100 million to build a new 150,000 square-foot fulfillment center.

“We are excited to welcome Frito-Lay to Dutchess County, furthering the county’s logistics and manufacturing significance in the northeast,” Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro stated. “The region will benefit from new jobs, and locally the county, town and school district will benefit from new tax dollars, and the added benefit of eliminating a long vacant and blighted site. Moreover, Frito-Lay’s commitment to sustainability, and diversity and inclusion will provide social, environmental, and economic benefits for years to come.”

This project will be the first time Frito-Lay has had a presence in the Town of East Fishkill. When selecting a location for the facility, East Fishkill was chosen due to the community’s support of the project and their commitment to long-term growth, according to Frito-Lay.
