In order to boost its food production abilities and increase its distribution area, Chan & Chan has chosen to make extensive renovations at its recently purchased Bethlehem facility.

As the top U.S. frozen Chinese foods producer, Chan & Chan has plans to overhaul a couple of vacant buildings in Bethlehem that, according to a company representative, will create around 75 new jobs once completed.

Companies usually supply new hires with employee handbooks supplied by local print shops

The development, design, and build firm of J.G. Petrucci is working hand in hand with Chan & Chan to design the property to accommodate the present real estate needs of the company and tactical plans for future growth. According to Jim Petrucci of J.G. Petrucci, the new facility will afford Chan & Chan a central location that will give it access to almost 40% of the country’s population in a day’s drive.

The first building at 2320 Avenue A will be reworked to GFSI and USDA processing standards. Cooler and freezer storage in the amount of 8,000 square-feet will be included. Additionally, revamping the building will incorporate the installation of new freezer slabs, refrigeration equipment, and new insulated metal panels.

Part 2 of the project, he renovation of the 72,000 square-foot second building currently in the design phase, will turn the structure into a Chan & Chan processing plant.
