Gavin P. Smith – The Griffin Report
Goya Foods of Florida, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, recently announced its plan to build a new $26-million manufacturing and distribution facility in Miami-Dade County. The 120,000 sq. ft. expansion is expected to create at least 30 additional jobs for the Miami-Dade area over the course of three years.
Initially, the company considered relocating to places like Orlando, West Palm Beach and Broward County. However, the many benefits of staying in the Miami-Dade County area significantly outweighed the benefits of locating in other areas of Florida. Goya has been establishing their current operations in Miami-Dade since they first settled into the Florida area just over thirty years ago.
