Great Lakes Cheese has announced plans to build what’s being described as a $100 million “super plant” in Manchester, creating 200 new jobs in Coffee County over the next six years.

This would be the dairy company’s first manufacturing facility in the Southeast. The Ohio-based firm specializes in making store-brand cheeses.

It will build a 330,000 square-foot plant in the Manchester Industrial Park, becoming its first tenant.
