Business Innovation Stories

When you tear open a bag of your favorite Frito-Lay snacks, you probably don’t give much thought to how it got onto your kitchen shelf. But there is a whole lot that goes into bringing our foods to you.

Frito-Lay operates 30 U.S. production facilities covering every region of the country. Our plants span a range of geographies, and each has its own unique needs.

And they all have one thing in common, an incredible group of talented associates who are the backbone of our operations. These men and women keep our plants running smoothly and efficiently so that we can bring you – our consumers – the snacks you enjoy.

Our business is transforming as we bring more of what our consumers want to store shelves – whether it’s products made with real veggies and whole grains, those that are lower in saturated fat and sodium, or unique new flavors and shapes, the list goes on and on.

We also are transforming how we do business.

Increased demand and the need to compete in an ever-changing marketplace has, in some ways, made us reimagine how we talk about our snacks and bring them to you.

More than 75 years ago, Herman Lay began selling Lay’s potato chips to customers from the back of a Model A Ford. Today, our associates service more than 18,000 routes and make more than 500,000 weekly service calls to more than 280,000 stores.

Times have changed and so have we. Frito-Lay is upgrading existing equipment and adding new capabilities across our facilities, putting greater emphasis on things like efficiency and customization for our retail customers. And our marketing is evolving too with new ways of reaching fans in-store and beyond. Today, we like to say Frito-Lay is as much a technology company as we are a snack company. But one thing you can always count on is great taste and great moments.
