visitors a year to what is largely a manufacturing plant.
Available space was a key reason for Jelly
Belly’s decision to locate in Fairfield. The city,
with a population of 107,684 and 36. 7 square
miles in size, also has assets in addition to
available space that attracted the candy maker,
and continues to attract numerous food manufacturers.
Other food manufacturering facilities located
in Fairfield include Abbot Nutrition, makers of
Similac, Pedialyte and other nutritional products;
Sepay Groves Olive Oil, which creates and bottles
olive oil; and Engelhart Gourmet Foods, makers
of sausages, including traditional German and
gourmet poultry sausages with brands such as
Schwarz, Home, Le Pique Nique, and Leon’s BBQ.
Guittard Chocolate Company, the oldest continuously family-owned chocolate company in the nation, has its distribution, warehouse, shipping, and repacking operations in Fairfield. It has been gradually migrating
some of its manufacturing to the city from
Burlingame, California, 50 miles away.
In addition, Columbus Salame, a San
Francisco manufacturer of dried sausage
and deli products since 1917, recognized the
value of a Fairfield location and in 2005 pur-
chased 17 acres of land, which is being held
for future use.
Another of the city’s assets that appeals to
food manufacturers is excellent transportation
access to ports, rail and airports. The city is
bisected by Interstates 80, 680 and Highway
12, making it a good trucking zone and allowing
companies to easily move their products on
north-south and east-west corridors.
Further enhancing Fairfield’s
accessibility is the fact that city
leaders created new industrial busi-
ness parks and redirected a local
highway from the city’s downtown
to its perimeter in order to provide
easy access to those parks. Another
area of the city’s infrastructure
includes state-of-the-art sewer and
water systems, with capacity for
build out. The water supply is of
high quality and plentiful, a rarity in
drought-stricken California, and of
such importance to food manufac-
turers that it’s expected to draw more compa-
nies to Fairfield’s food cluster. The city currently
has 100 available acres in its Solano Business
Park where Jelly Belly and several other food
companies are located and an additional 100
acres throughout the city.
Another factor that appeals to food manufacturers is less expensive prices for commercial and industrial space
compared to the surrounding Bay Area. There’s
a large, well-qualified workforce made up of a
