For Immediate Release
Harmony House Foods To Locate In Franklin
Harmony House Foods Inc, a leading outfitter of dehydrated foods to backpackers, restaurants, schools and families, will locate operations in the Macon County Business Development Center.
County Commissioners approved the lease agreement Tuesday evening. “We welcome Harmony House to Macon County and are excited about their growth potential,” said commission chairman Kevin Corbin. “With their ties to the outdoor recreation industry, we think they are perfect fit for our area.”
Founded in 2005, the family-owned business maintains a strong on-line sales presence and is a supplier to outdoor related companies such as REI. In 2007, Backpacker Magazine awarded Harmony House with its “Editors’ Choice” award, gaining the company national recognition. In addition, the company was a SBA “Business People of the Year” nominee in 2008.
We are privileged to be relocating to an area of North Carolina that is not only stunningly beautiful, but is open and accommodating to the business community,” said John Seaman, President of Harmony House Foods. “We are looking forward to a long-lasting, positive relationship with the good people of Macon County.”
Harmony House will occupy approximately 7500 square feet of the county’s Business Development Center and is expected to initially employ 5-7 employees. Operations are scheduled to begin in September.
This is another step forward as we strive to diversify our local economy”, said Tommy Jenkins, Macon County EDC Director. “We look forward to Harmony House’s continued success in Macon County.”
