Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Home Chef, a meal kit delivery service, will create more than 1,200 jobs and invest $3.35 million in a new DeKalb County facility by 2020. Home Chef’s new facility will serve as a wholesale purchasing, assembling, packaging and distribution center. To house the new center, the company will lease a 140,000-square-foot facility on Lithonia Industrial Boulevard.

“Home Chef’s presence in DeKalb will be the first meal kit delivery service production facility in metro Atlanta, an exciting new concept taking the nation by storm,” said Decide DeKalb President Ray Gilley. “With this unique project choosing to locate in the heart of east DeKalb, it signals to us and hopefully the rest of the business community, the incredible opportunities available here for additional jobs and investment. DeKalb’s robust transportation network, close proximity to the airport and diverse workforce will help enhance Home Chef’s delivery capacity to new and existing customers in and around the southeastern United States.”
