From 2010 to 2020, the Food and Beverage Processing industry has grown 14% nationally.

This central positioning and proximity to major roadways allow businesses to capitalize on the ever-growing demands of shorter delivery times. Lockhart also offers large, flat industrial sites, easing the site-selection process.
