JEFFERSONVILLE -

Illinois-based Enjoy Life Foods has announced plans to open a state-of-the-art, allergy-friendly manufacturing facility in Jeffersonville. The new facility will create between 100 and 150 jobs with the potential for more.

The company says manufacturing will transition to the new plant in the second quarter of 2016. The company's current facility in Schiller Park, Illinois will close in the third quarter.

"The growth opportunity afforded by this new facility is an exciting step forward for our brand," said Scott Mandell, CEO and founder of Enjoy Life Foods. "We’ve outgrown capacity at our current facility. This new plant will improve overall manufacturing efficiency while providing the space for us to accelerate growth and bring our delicious allergy-friendly and gluten-free snacks to even more people."

Current employees of Enjoy Life Foods will have the opportunity to continue to work for the company at the new facility.
