Table Talk Pies broke ground on a new manufacturing site in Worcester that will produce 1 million pies a week once it comes online.
The groundbreaking took place at the South Worcester Industrial Park on Thursday morning and was attended by numerous city officials, representatives of Table Talk as well as James Chacharone, founder of Worcester-based Chacharone Properties that is developing the site.
The Table Talk project covers the construction of a 50,000-square-foot modern industrial building set to be completed in approximately six months. The site will bring 30 jobs from the company’s existing facility on Water Street and create an additional 50 full-time jobs.
Table Talk Pies is a family business that was established in 1924. Harry Kokkinis, president of Table Talk Pies, said that the company spent four months looking for a proper site for the expanded manufacturing capacity and could not find an existing structure in Worcester.
The property’s construction is being handled by RP Masiello Inc. of Boylston, which has worked on eight other projects with Chacharone Properties.
