MACON, GA-With the aid of a $500,000 state equipment purchase grant, Atlanta entrepreneur Johnny Imerman, co-founder of Regional Recycling Co., plans to open Georgia’s first kosher poultry processing plan Jan. 14 at the former 80,000-sf, 11-acre Cagle’s Inc. chicken plant which closed last summer.

The $28 million property, acquired by Imerman’s King David Kosher Inc., will be based in Macon, 90 miles southeast of Downtown Atlanta. The Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority gave the company $100,000 tax abatements over seven years for new equipment purchases, according to a published report. Cagle’s is funding an undisclosed portion of the purchase price.

The site is in Macon’s 500-acre Downtown Industrial District, part of the Brownfields Redevelopment Areas.
