Warrenton-based Evermade Foods is investing $110,000 to expand its manufacturing operations and add 46 jobs, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Monday.

Evermade Foods is a co-manufacturer of prepared meals sold under private labels at grocery stores and through meal subscription services. The company has invested $1.7 million in building upgrades, machinery and tools to its 12,000-square-foot commercial kitchen, packaging line and warehouse since opening in Fauquier County in April, Youngkin said in a news release. In addition to the expansion of its operations at 6775 Kennedy Road in Warrenton, the company will also add a new product line of shelf-stable, grab-and-go products.

Virginia competed with North Carolina and Texas for the project.

“Since day one, we’ve been working to foster 10,000 new start-up businesses in the commonwealth and we are thrilled to celebrate the rapid growth of Evermade Foods, an exemplary Virginia startup that is making a name for itself in the commonwealth’s thriving food and beverage processing industry,” Youngkin said in a statement. “Our large and diverse ecosystem in this sector ensures partners and suppliers, warehousing and a sophisticated transportation infrastructure to move products to market quickly. We look forward to supporting the company’s continued success in Fauquier County.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Fauquier County to secure the project for Virginia and will support Evermade Foods’ job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consulting services and money for companies creating jobs to support employee recruitment and training at no cost to the business.

“When we decided to expand our footprint with a new company, Virginia was a logical choice for us, as we already had experience dealing with local and state entities,” Rachelle Slotnick, CEO and founder of Evermade Foods, said in a statement. “We chose Fauquier County due to development opportunities and availability of new commercial space. Virginia has provided us with a stable workforce, excellent transportation for receiving and distribution of products throughout the mid-Atlantic, and a great relationship with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and Fauquier County. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with the community at large as we continue to grow and expand in Fauquier County.”
