DOUGLASVILLE - Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. will open a manufacturing facility in Douglas County, creating approximately 550 jobs and investing $337 million over the next five years.<br />
The facility will support the production of pods for the company's new Keurig Cold platform, an in-home cold beverage system that will give consumers a way to quickly produce their favorite cold beverage brands with the same one-touch system used in Keurig's hot beverage applications. <br />
Keurig will be taking applications online this fall for a variety of job opportunities at the Douglasville plant, including production, maintenance, engineering, materials management, safety, facilities, continuous learning, IT, quality, and more. <br />
