A 300,000 SF Sales and Distribution Center ignites excitement in the severely distressed census tract of Tifton, GA, creating 240 permanent full-time jobs and 110 construction jobs while spurring economic growth for the community. Coca-Cola United’s commitment to workforce development will provide training and educational opportunities to improve employee skillsets, career prospects, and offer access to multifaceted training opportunities. The company’s partnerships with local recruitment organizations and educational institutions have helped adults achieve high school equivalency and job placement, as well as local technical college education and internship opportunities, improving the quality of life for many.
We are excited about our significant investment in Tifton and the impact it will have on our new community in South Georgia. This project is another example of Coca-Cola UNITED’s foundation of community investment and development and will greatly benefit our associates, the local residents, and our company for many years to come.”
