ACE Bakery, LLC, an artisan bakery that produces par-baked breads for retail customers, is expanding its existing Cherokee County operations. The $31.9 million investment is expected to create 40 new jobs over the next several years.

ACE Bakery, a wholly-owned subsidiary of George Weston Limited, produces and distributes baked goods to a variety of retail and foodservice sectors. The company's Cherokee County facilities are located at 131 Corporate Drive in Gaffney.

To accommodate its continued growth, ACE Bakery will be growing its operations by 80,000 square feet, adding a production line, and doubling the size of its existing freezer.

"We at ACE Bakery are very excited with the opportunity Cherokee County has provided us to expand our business," says ACE Bakery President Roy Benin. "The region's growth, as well as the workforce and infrastructure, were key factors in expanding our bakery. We appreciate the support from the State of South Carolina and Cherokee County, and look forward to continuing this great partnership."
