Carson City, NV — Stellar Snacks is opening its second state-of-the-art pretzel production plant through a $137 million 10-year investment in a 434,000-square-foot pretzel bakery facility in Louisville, KY. Mother and daughter Elisabeth and Gina Galvin founded the company in 2019 under a “Pretzels with a Purpose” platform, producing non-GMO, vegan pretzels with sustainably sourced ingredients. The company reports its sales are up 162 percent in the past 52 weeks.
“We are humbled and honored that our business has seen astounding growth after launching our brand just a few short years ago, thanks to our people and passion for a higher quality pretzel,” says Elisabeth Galvin. “Since then, we have been on a mission to expand production coast to coast, and we are so pleased to have selected Louisville as our home in the Mid-South. The outcome will be an important success story for our whole team and the people of Kentucky. We can’t emphasize enough that our goal is to provide career opportunities and positive impact in Louisville, especially in the Park Hill community so we can flourish together in the years to come.”
“We believe every pretzel has a purpose,” says Gina Galvin. “That’s why we commission emerging artists to design one-of-a-kind artwork for our packaging and engage with the arts community to inspire creativity in the world around us, and find ways to truly engage in the communities where we operate.”
