About the Project


Simmons Prepared Foods’ new Benton County chicken operation will produce high-quality fresh and frozen prepared chicken products in response to steady and growing customer demand. The design will feature modern production facilities and contemporary office space supported with best-in-class environmental technologies. The operation will employ approximately 2,300 people (at full capacity) and contract with local farmers.

Simmons’ existing operations in the Decatur, Arkansas area include a feed mill, hatchery, propane business, business offices and a chicken processing facility, along with a dry pet food production facility operated by Simmons Pet Food.
