Stuffed Puffs, manufacturer of chocolate-filled marshmallows, recently cut the ribbon on its new 150,000-s.f. plant in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Stuffed Puffs founder and CEO Mike Tierney; Richard Thompson, managing partner of Factory LLC; DJ Marshmello and his manager Moe Shalizi; Jim Petrucci, founder and president of J.G. Petrucci Co. Inc.; Don Cunningham, CEO of Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp.; and Dennis M. Davin, Pennsylvania Secretary of Community and Economic Development, participated in the ceremonies.

Stuffed Puffs“Stuffed Puffs will be available at retailers across the U.S. in the next year,” Tierney said. “The Lehigh Valley offers great incentives for companies to build here.”  “With my partners, Richard Thompson and Marshmello, our plan is to have this new plant up and running quickly to meet demand. Meanwhile, Stuffed Puffs’ existing plant in Wisconsin is running 24/7 to satisfy America’s new-found craving for S’mores Indoors.”

Stuffed Puffs received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.

“Food processing is one of Pennsylvania’s most robust and vibrant industries, supporting thousands of jobs and generating more than $5 billion in sales annually,” said Davin. “It is only fitting that Stuffed Puffs, a new, innovative food company, would make the Lehigh Valley in our commonwealth its new home, and we are proud to have helped.”

The building, located at 3900 Burgess Place in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, was formerly home to Guardian Life Insurance. J.G. Petrucci, began demolition and construction at the site in Q1 2019.  “We are very excited to welcome Stuffed Puffs to Lehigh Valley Flex Center,” said Petrucci. “Stuffed Puffs is a dynamic innovator in the food industry and perfect fit for this project.”

“The decision of Stuffed Puffs to expand its production operations to the Lehigh Valley is an example of the region becoming a national leader in food and beverage innovation and production,” said Cunningham.
