The Winn-Dixie Deep South Beverage Manufacturing facility Fitzgerald will become Polar Beverages-Southern Bottling.
The plant, which makes Chek Cola, is being sold. There will be no employee layoffs or changes in pay. In fact officials with Polar Beverages say they plan to add jobs in the future.
"We intend to add some more manufacturing capabilities to this plant and different packing sizes that will allow us to produce some new products that overtime we hope will really grown and help fill out this plant," said Michael J. Mulrain, CFO.
The Deep South facility has been operated by Winn Dixie for about 20 years and had around 125 employees.
