MOM Brands® Adds 50 Jobs in Randolph County


ASHEBORO, N.C. (August 23, 2012) – MOM Brands, the nation’s largest family owned cereal company, has announced it is adding 50 new jobs to its Asheboro facility as the company completes its $140 million expansion there.

Currently, the 33-acre Asheboro facility employs 200 people and is already one of the largest employers in Randolph County. The MOM Brands expansion has added more than 350,000 square feet of production space, doubling the size of the facility. The project also adds more production lines, and an on-site, 80,000-square-foot warehouse that was completed last year. With this expansion, the company will be adding positions ranging from line managers to maintenance technicians.

“MOM Brands has been an outstanding addition to Asheboro and Randolph County’s economy. In a few short years, it has made a significant economic impact to our community,” said Bonnie Renfro, president of the Randolph County Economic Development Corporation (RCEDC). “We are delighted to see the new jobs as a result of this expansion. It’s a great career opportunity for our people at a time when unemployment continues to be too high and our residents need jobs more than ever.”

Chris Neugent, MOM Brands chairman and CEO, credits the growth of the Asheboro facility to the fact that MOM is the only major cereal company making strides in a large, but flat, category. Additionally, Neugent said there is increased demand for the Malt-O-Meal® product line, which includes the company’s best-selling Frosted Mini Spooners® and Frosted Flakes, as well as the popularity of the Better Oats® instant oatmeal line.

“In this tough economy, we are proud that our success and long-term growth enables us to create more good jobs in Asheboro”, said Neugent. “And, just as important is our commitment to producing the highest quality cereals while saving families money every day. The mission of MOM Brands is to continue to find better ways to give families across America a better breakfast at a better price.”

Hiring will take place between October and November. Interested applicants can find out more information on the MOM Brands Career page on its website at

    Thank you for the most enjoyable non sugary
    cereal “Honey & Oat Blenders” that I found on
    the shelf at my local Big Lots store. The
    price is low enough for my budget and I
    appreciate the bag packaging to save me from
    crushing and folding the box and filling up
    the heavy recycle bin. I am 80 years old and
    have seen the Malt O Meal cereal on the store shelves for years. mostly my childhood
    years growing up in the cold country when MOM gave us hot cereal before we went off to school. Good Luck…keep America

    I purchased my MaltOMeal at Big Lot,s In Bloomington Indiana. I recently went back to purchase more. They did not have it on their shelves. I really would like to purchase it there again. I remember MaltOMeal as a kid. I am 65 years old and still like the cereal and would like to make the muffins. Could they please restock it in my store?

    Greetings from the Bridge of the World and Heart of the Americas: Republic of Panama. I don’t have much time knowing MOM’s brands, but since I met them, I just can’t stop trying them all. The accesible prices, the nutrition aspects and flavor make them favorites at home, and I’m spreading the voice in the office. Thank you guys and keep up!!
