STONY PLAIN, AB: Jack Seguin, owner of English Bay Blending & Fine Chocolates (English Bay), was joined by representatives from the Government of Alberta and Stony Plain to announce the relocation and expansion of the business from Delta, BC, to Stony Plain.

English Bay's new $30 million facility will be approximately 120,000 square feet and located on 8.3 acres of land in Stony Plain's North Business Park. The facility's construction will create approximately 90 temporary jobs starting in the spring of 2023 and upwards of 75 permanent jobs upon opening in 2025.

Jack Seguin says, "Stony Plain has been on my radar for quite some time. The low cost of land and property taxes, easy transportation access, diverse business ecosystem, and supportive community are a few reasons I've chosen to relocate and expand my business here. Not many other places match the quality of the opportunities Stony Plain offers."

Mayor William Choy says, "Stony Plain is honoured to welcome English Bay Blending & Fine Chocolates to our community. Mr. Seguin's investment will create valuable jobs for Stony Plain residents and supports Council's vision of growing the community. We are currently exploring options to further incentivize this investment through our Commercial, Industrial and Multi-Unit Residential Infill Policy and the Development Agreement Security Policy. Both policies are tools we use to foster new development that benefits our residents and community."

Economic Development Officer Michelle Levasseur says, "This investment really substantiates Stony Plain's value proposition – convenient access to transportation, a skilled workforce, supportive Council, and a vibrant and unique community atmosphere. English Bay's announcement helps reimagine Stony Plain and is exactly what Stony Plain needs to attract similar businesses to create a high-end food campus in the North Business Park."

English Bay's Stony Plain facility will be more than double that of their former 43,000-square-foot BC location and will include additional production lines to increase business offerings and services to existing and new clients.
