Allied Specialty Foods in Vineland, maker of thinly-sliced beef used in Philly cheesesteaks, will expand its production facility in the area and add 127 jobs, the company and New Jersey officials said Friday.
 
The state’s Economic Development Authority had awarded Allied a Grow New Jersey Assistance Program award worth about $13.7 million, according to the state’s Office of the Governor.
 
The company had eyed other locations, including out of state, as it looked to expand its operations to meet growing demands, President Paul Litten said.
 
“We were looking in Delaware to do something. They were very aggressive and offered a lot of things. We decided New Jersey was very persuasive and they really opened up their arms and went above and beyond,” he said.
 
Located on Hickory Place in Vineland, Allied Specialty Foods currently has about 70 full-time positions.
 
Litten said they plan to add 30 more in the next two weeks.
 
An expanded facility in Vineland will allow the company to double its production lines to four lines for cooked meats and six lines for raw, Litten said.

The company currently produces about 400,000 pounds a week, he said.
 
He said he hopes to break ground by the end of the year and be operating in the enlarged facility by the end of 2015.
