DORAL, FL-Goya Foods of Florida is planning to build a new $26-million, 120,000-sf manufacturing and distribution facility at the Pan American West Business Park. With the expansion, the company expects to add 30 new jobs.

“As the Goya brand grows and strengthens, we needed to insure our growth strategies were in line,” says Goya Foods of Florida president Francisco Unanue, in a released statement. “Miami-Dade has and will continue to be a strategic distribution hub for our southeast manufacturing and distribution operations. It provides the global access, transportation infrastructure and business climate Goya needs to stay on a successful and growing track.”

The Beacon Council assisted Goya with a local incentive to expand in Miami-Dade County. The company qualified for the Miami-Dade County Targeted Jobs Incentive Fund incentive, a performance-based incentive that will be disbursed if the company meets specific criteria over the next three years. The company had considered relocating to Orlando, West Palm Beach and Broward County but decided to stay in Miami-Dade County.

A Beacon Council spokesperson tells GlobeSt.com that the incentive will not be paid out until the company demonstrates that it has invested the amount of money in the area that it promised and created the number of jobs it claimed would be generated.

The company entered Miami-Dade County in 1976 and established its current operations at 1900 NW 92nd Ave. in Doral. Goya also has manufacturing and distribution facilities in other parts of the US, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Spain.
