Sweet Street Desserts to open South Carolina facility

Sweet Street Desserts

Sweet Street Desserts Inc., Reading, Pa., a manufacturer of gourmet desserts, is opening a new manufacturing facility in Greenville, S.C. The investment is expected to generate at least 80 new jobs over the next several years.

Sweet Street is purchasing a 120,000-sq.-ft. former Sara Lee building at 1916 Piedmont Highway in Greenville County and will be updating the facility with new machinery and equipment. The company expects to begin manufacturing operations by summer 2014.

“We are pleased to move forward with plans to locate our new facility in South Carolina, allowing us to expand production capacity and more easily and efficiently reach our growing customer base in markets across North and South America,” says Sandy Solmon, founder and CEO. “The state of South Carolina and local community offered us a wonderful business environment and bent over backwards to assist us. Greenville County provided us with an excellent facility that is ideally suited to our needs, and we are excited to begin this new chapter in our organization’s history.”
