Join Our Team and Bring Home the Bacon

Tyson Foods leadership, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, and city officials from Bowling Green broke ground on Feb. 2, 2022 on the site of Tyson’s new $355 million bacon production facility.  Once operational in late 2023, the 400,000 square foot facility will employ 450 people and help meet growing demand for the company’s iconic Wright® and Jimmy Dean® brands. 

The state-of-the-art facility will feature the latest robotics and automated technologies to maximize production efficiency and team member safety. The plant will be in the expanded Kentucky Transpark in Bowling Green. It will be several months before the company will be able to hire team members, but people who want to work at the new facility are encouraged to frequently check the Tyson Foods Careers website.
