Homegrown and world-renowned.
Louisville is a foodie’s dream. Aside from our unique and multicultural dining scene, we also help food and beverage companies quickly go from concept to consumer. Kentucky Fried Chicken is our claim to fame, but you may not know that Yum! Brands and Papa Johns Pizza have roots in Greater Louisville. In 2021, tofu producer House Foods America Corp. announced a $146.3 million investment in a Louisville facility, creating 109 full-time jobs.
Greater Louisville is internationally known for our signature spirit – bourbon, and those aging barrels are also a key part of the regional economy. Home to Brown-Forman Corp., Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Angel’s Envy, and more, bourbon is more than a tourist attraction. Greater Louisville-based companies produce and ship across the globe and employ thousands of Louisvillians. A craft beer scene is continuing to grow in Greater Louisville, with new breweries and taprooms popping up each year and growing in the region and beyond.
