GOODYEAR, ARIZ.  — Factor has opened a-300,100 square-foot facility in Goodyear to scale its brand. The facility will serve as an industrial kitchen for the company.

The ready-to-eat, meal delivery service brand will employ over 800 employees who will cook meals from scratch, prepare, and fulfill customer orders at the new facility. The facility will be supplied with automated technology as well as sustainable operations, such as COrefrigeration.

Factor began in Chicago in 2013 and was later acquired by HelloFresh Group in 2020.

“Ready-to-eat meals continue to be one of the fastest growing segments in the United States, and I’m proud that Factor has become the market leader in this space, providing customers across the US with convenient, high-quality meals,” said Uwe Voss, chief executive officer, HelloFresh North America. “The addition of the Goodyear facility will allow us to increase capacity, serve more customers, and drive further significant growth to our business, all while offering a first-class service. We’re grateful for the partnership with the city of Goodyear and look forward to continuing to support the local community.”
