BUTNER – Carolina Coops, a custom chicken coop manufacturer, will create 147 new jobs over three years in Granville County. The company will invest $2.1 million to locate a production facility in Butner. 

Originally founded in Durham in 2009, Carolina Coops is a family-owned producer of superior, walk-in chicken coops and related accessories. The company designs, manufactures, and distributes the hand-crafted backyard coops globally. In high demand for their durability and signature deep litter beds, Carolina Coops offers standard and customized hen-houses for functional farmers to purchase online.

Carolina Coops returns to North Carolina from upstate New York to expand their manufacturing footprint just outside of Creedmoor, in the Town of Butner. 

“We are excited to be coming back to North Carolina where it all started,” said Matthew DuBoise, owner of Carolina Coops. “We couldn’t have done it without the support of North Carolina and Granville County. We look forward to being a part of the local community, creating jobs and outreach such as Rotary Club, FFA, and incubating eggs in the classroom, so we can grow together.”
