Good To-Go, the Kittery-based maker of dehydrated meals designed to give hikers and other outdoor adventurers gourmet meals on the trail, recently completed a major expansion that will allow it to meet the growing demand for its products.
The expansion added 3,700 sq. ft. of production space, which has already allowed meal production to increase by 43% and to run only one shift compared to the three it had been forced to operate with.
The company, founded by husband-wife team Jennifer Scism and David Koorits, produces dehydrated meals with flavors ranging from Thai Curry to Indian Vegetable Korma. Its sales have been growing rapidly: a 600% increase between 2014 and 2015. The company is forecasting a 400% year-over-year increase in sales this year, so the expansion comes at a key time, according to Koorits.
“The expansion of our production facility and the additional staff was critical for us to address growth in a timely manner,” Koorits said in a statement. “The space is working out better than expected and Jen and I are really proud of the team we have in place—they make everything possible and got us up and running in the new facility quickly and smoothly.”
Its meals are currently sold in more than 400 retail stores around the country.
