New PepsiCo facility breaks ground near Commerce City

PepsiCo Beverages of North America broke ground on their new manufacturing plant just south of Commerce City on Sept. 27.

The plant is scheduled to open in 2023 and generate 250 new jobs, in addition to retaining the 250 jobs they already employ in the area.

Erica Edwards, senior vice president of supply chain, described how it will be PepsiCo’s largest manufacturing facility and how they've implemented sustainable design. 

She said the plant might be powered by 100% renewable energy. As well, they will have water recovery, meaning any water that comes out of the facility as waste will be treated and used again. 

Edwards said the company chose the area because of the 100 acres of land available to build the 1.2 million square feet facility.
