Erick Garcia, President of Gunler Foods, Inc., said, “We are excited to get started on building our new plants in the Texas Triangle Park. After a lengthy analysis of several options, Gunler choose to come to Brazos County, Texas due to the benefits offered by the location and infrastructure of the site.

The responsiveness, enthusiasm and professionalism of Brazos County, the City of Bryan and Research Valley Partnership representatives have been outstanding. We look forward to becoming part of this wonderful community.”

In addition, Gunler Foods, Inc. projects that after thirty-six months of full operations it will employ 200 workers generating a payroll of $6.5 million for their combined operations.

“We are very pleased to welcome Gunler Foods as the first company to locate in Texas Triangle Park and value the jobs they are bringing to the Research Valley,” Todd E. McDaniel, President & CEO of The Research Valley Partnership, said. “Their decision continues to validate the unique advantages of Texas Triangle Park’s connectivity to major consumer markets in Texas and Mexico through access due to our unique geographic position and strong transportation network.
We are honored that Gunler will make their home here and are committed to their future success.”
