Pepsi Bottling expansion in N.C. will retain 200 jobs
HARRISBURG, N.C. — Pepsi Bottling Ventures will officially begin operating in a newly constructed, 200,000-square-foot sales and distribution facility located on 32 acres off highway 49 in the Town of Harrisburg.
Announced last April, the new operation allows Pepsi Bottling Ventures to retain more than 200 current jobs and consolidate both the Charlotte (South Boulevard) location, as well as the Midland, NC location into a single facility.

Most all employees from both locations are transferring to the new facility. The sales and distribution center will support the significant growth anticipated by PBV in the Charlotte market for years to come. Pepsi Bottling Ventures purchased the Charlotte area franchise in a territory swap with PepsiCo in mid-2013.
PBV President and CEO, Paul Finney stated, “The new Harrisburg location provides us with the needed scale to leverage our operating capability to serve the customer base in the fastest growing region in North Carolina. We are very excited to be part of Harrisburg and the Charlotte metro-area.”
