Stella & Chewy’s LLC is planning a $67.7 million expansion of its facility in Oak Creek, WI.

“Stella & Chewy’s has expanded our sales and product offerings over the past few years and we expect the growth to continue,” said Stella & Chewy’s CEO Marc Hill. “In order to meet projected product demand, the company will expand our current production footprint by approximately 140,000 additional square feet.”

The increased space will mainly consist of production operations, including proprietary processing technology and additional office space for production and corporate personnel, as well as more storage for raw materials. The company expects to hire approximately 245 employees; it will require mostly manufacturing personnel to support its production and growth.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is supporting the project by authorizing up to $2 million in state income tax credits over the next three years. The actual amount of tax credits Stella & Chewy’s will receive is contingent upon the number of jobs created.

Stella & Chewy’s LLC is an Oak Creek-based company that was founded by Marie Moody in 2003. The company’s products are manufactured in Oak Creek and sold at more than 6,000 neighborhood pet stores in the U.S. and Canada.
