Reading Time: < 1 minute

Indianapolis-based McYoung Foods LLC is celebrating the opening of a new manufacturing and warehouse facility for its Awesome Granola brand. The company has invested $500,000 to establish the nut-free facility, which brings production of the gluten- and allergy-free granola product to central Indiana from its previous location in Fargo, North Dakota. Chairman Bill McGinnis says the new, 6,200-square-foot location on Indy’s northeast side more than doubles its previous production space.

“From what I’ve been told, Indianapolis is within 10 hours of the 50% of the U.S. population,” said McGinnis. “We ship all over the country, so it’s really nice to be centrally located. And the cost of shipping in Indianapolis is a whole lot less than the cost of shipping out of Fargo, North Dakota.”
