NEW BRITAIN – A $21 million expansion of Rich’s Foods is set to begin later this fall.

Headquartered at 263 Myrtle St. the company, also known as Rich’s Products Corporation, is set to begin the expansion project in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to Mayor Erin Stewart.

“New Britain is a prime location for business to come to and thrive,” Stewart said. “The fact that Rich’s Foods chose to stay here after conducting a nationwide search for a location to expand operations is proof of that, and we look forward to having them as a part of our community for many more years to come.”

Rich’s will be adding a new production line, new manufacturing equipment, cold storage and an innovative palletizing and shipping addition to its facility.

The building expansion will match its current height, dimensions and facade materials.

The project is expected to bring over 300 construction and project support jobs to the City, along with close to 100 new manufacturing jobs.

The Buffalo- N.Y.-based Rich Products purchased the property at 1 Celebration Way from Celebration Foods over a decade ago.
