The new production center is Home Chef’s first single-tenant facility and will be equipped with state-of-the-art features including upgraded food-safe material design, cleaning processes, facility flow, and more. This Douglasville location will be the first Home Chef facility to incorporate a full service kitchen for cooking and batch production of ingredients to be used in the company’s meals. This 6,000 square-foot space will handle the cooking of vegetables, starches, and grains, as well as in-house sauce production.

“Our Atlanta facility is a foundational part of delivering high-quality meals to our customers in the south and beyond,” said Erik Jensen, Home Chef’s CEO in a statement. “This brand new center will make our production and distribution even more efficient, so we can continue to bring fans easy, delicious recipes.”

Acquired by Kroger, America’s largest grocery retailer, in 2018, Home Chef offers simple, approachable, and tasty recipes in many formats, from minimal-mess Oven-Ready and Fast & Fresh meal kits to Culinary Collection for more adventurous home cooks and add-ons like protein packs, salads, desserts, and more. Home Chef’s brand new space will accommodate both the e-commerce meal delivery service and retail needs of the business.

“I’m thrilled that Home Chef decided to bring its business to Douglasville,” said Rochelle Robinson, Douglasville mayor. “Once again, Douglasville proves it is the place to do business in metro Atlanta, and I can’t wait to see the positive economic impact this Home Chef development will have on the Douglasville community, which is always open for business.”

Elevate Douglas Economic Partnership worked proactively with Home Chef, as well as with partners such as the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the City of Douglasville.

“It is an honor to welcome Home Chef to Douglasville,” said Chris Pumphrey, president of Elevate Douglas Economic Partnership. “We are committed to the recruitment of great companies to our community and even more committed to being their partner in helping them thrive right here in Douglas County.”
