By Jamal Thomas

Kentucky based, minority-owned Manna Beverages & Ventures will be building a $600 million dollar beverage production facility in Montgomery.

The 1.7 million square foot production facility is expected to have its first bottle come off the line in 2025.

“Alabama is known for being a wonderful place to do business” said Founding Partner Ulysses “Junior” Bridgeman. “We are proud to build our first facility in Montgomery. The people in Montgomery are genuine.”

Bridgman is a former NBA star and current owner of Ebony and Jet magazines.

Governor Kay Ivey is excited about Manna coming to Montgomery. “This is an exciting day for the state of Alabama. Announcements like this means the state of Alabama is doing things right.”

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed stated that he was proud of the new partnership with Manna and how it will provide new opportunities for Black and minority-owned businesses.

Manna will be located off Interstate 65 near the Hope Hull exit and is expected to create 280 full-time jobs.
