Turkey producer Butterball LLC will relocate its corporate headquarters from Mount Olive NC to Garner NC in spring 2008. The company's more than $12 million investment in Garner's Greenfield North business park will add approximately 70 corporate and executive-level management jobs to the local community over the next three years.

Butterball LLC, a new company formed after Carolina Turkeys' acquisition of the Butterball brand in 2006, evaluated locations throughout the nation for its corporate headquarters to accommodate needs for more space and easy access to an international airport.

The company will occupy 46,000 square feet of office space on more than 12 acres in Greenfield North, near Interstate 40 and US 70. Construction will take place in two phases. The first phase is expected to be complete in spring 2008, and a groundbreaking ceremony is set for September 2008.

“I grew up in Garner, and I'm thrilled that Butterball recognizes what I've known all these years: Garner is a great place to live and work,” said Garner Mayor Ronnie Williams. “This is a great day for Garner.”
