A California-based coffee company is moving its headquarters to the city in an expansion that’s expected to create 44 jobs over the next two years and more beyond that.
Puroast Coffee Co. Inc. has leased a 36,000-square-foot building in south High Point and will invest more than $1.5 million in machinery, equipment and building improvements to establish a new roasting, packaging and distribution operation, said CEO Kerry Sachs.
The company last year decided to move east from Woodland, California, to be closer to its consumers, and it initially looked at five states.
“High Point came out on top after an extensive search to locate our new operations,” Sachs said. “The workforce, location, manufacturing infrastructure, quality of life and the warm invitation from the (city) economic development team all contributed to our decision.”
