Heartland Coca-Cola Bottling Company previews intent to build state-of-the-art production campus in Kansas

Oct. 10, 2022
Slated to open late 2024, the facility will significantly expand current production capabilities.

Heartland Coca-Cola Bottling Company is pursuing a plan to build a nearly 600,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art production campus in Olathe, Kansas. Slated to open late 2024, it will significantly expand current production capabilities.

Junior Bridgeman established Heartland Coca-Cola Bottling Company in 2017 with a commitment to build a great place to work, a strong connection to Heartland’s communities and a locally based business that would grow into the future serving its customers. As Heartland celebrates its fifth anniversary, the Bridgeman family and the leadership team are pleased to announce plans for this new production campus, which will secure its position as an anchor Coca-Cola bottler in the Midwest and support economic growth for local communities for generations to come.

The company’s current production facility in Lenexa was built in 1969. “With this new campus, we will modernize our production process as we continue to embrace our core Heartland values of family, community, inclusion and service,” Heartland President Chuck Wyant said in the announcement.

It will be business as usual for Heartland’s Lenexa production facility over the next two-and-a-half to three years as the new campus is built, opens, and eventually reaches full capacity sometime in 2025. Heartland’s Lenexa Distribution Center and headquarters offices will remain in Lenexa.

Heartland Executive Director Justin Bridgeman added in the announcement, “We want to first thank our team members for their commitment to Heartland – and thank our customers, business partners, communities, and community leaders for their support as we complete our plans for this exciting new campus. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming months.”
