May 5. Carolina Coops, a custom chicken coop manufacturer, will invest $2.1 million in a new production facility in Granville County, creating 147 new jobs over three years, and up to 500 by 2026.

Founded in Durham in 2009, Carolina Coops is a family-owned producer of superior, walk-in chicken coops and related accessories. Carolina Coops returns to North Carolina from upstate New York to expand their manufacturing footprint in the Town of Butner.

“We are excited to be coming back to North Carolina, where it all started,” said Matthew DuBoise, owner of Carolina Coops. “We couldn’t have done it without the support of NC and Granville County. We look forward to being a part of the local community, creating jobs and outreach such as Rotary Club, FFA, and incubating eggs in classrooms, so we can grow together.”

The North Carolina Department of Commerce led a team of partners in supporting Carolina Coop’s decision to establish a manufacturing plant in North Carolina. The new positions include administrative, distribution, finance, marketing and sales, production, technical and transportation personnel. The average annual salary for all new positions is $46,859 creating a potential payroll impact of more than $6.8 million per year. Granville County’s average annual salary is $42,326.
