Kellogg’s looking at Marshall

It’s not official yet, but Kellogg’s may be coming to the Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park, according to the Memphis Business Journal.

A number of news outlets in Tennessee have already published that Kellogg’s has a site chosen in Marshall County. However, neither the Marshall County Board of Supervisors nor the Mississippi Development Authority have released anything on the possible move.

An article last week in the Memphis Business Journal leaked that Project Blue, as it is dubbed by the Mississippi Development Authority, will open a 774,000-square-foot distribution center in Spec 8 building next door to Amazon.

Panattoni Development Group has pulled a permit on Spec Building #8.

Post Cereal already has a presence in Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park.

Spec Building #8 is located west of Amazon, Corelle (Pyrex, Corning), and Cooper Tire, which is going into a onemillion-square-foot facility.

Amazon announced on December 22, 2018, that it is moving its distribution center and Corelle announced in January this year it is moving a manufacturing and distribution center to the park.

Other major companies in the park include Carrier, ASICS, Volvo, Niagara Bottling, McCormick, Roxul, Rockfon, and RBR Enterprises to round out the current 12 corporations to commit to Marshall County.

Kellogg’s has facilities in Memphis, Tenn., Rossville, Tenn., and Jackson, Tenn.

The Kellogg’s facility in Rossville makes Eggo waffles.

Kellogg’s is an American multi-national food-manufacturing company headquartered in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Among its best-known cereals are Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Special K, Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops and Rice Krispies.

The company’s manufacturing facilities in the U.S. include four cereal plants and warehouses in Battle Creek, Mich.; Lancaster, Pa.; Memphis; and Omaha, Neb. Its other facilities are mostly in Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio, according to the company’s website.
