The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development gave the plant-based protein manufacturing company the green light to expand its footprint to the greater Reno area on Wednesday.

State officials have agreed to grant $4.4 million in tax abatements. In exchange, Beyond Meat would build a 158,000-square-foot facility in Washoe County and hire and train 135 employees from the local Reno area within two years, offering an average hourly wage of $23.61. If plans move forward, the company’s 10-year cumulative economic impact is estimated to be more than $903 million, including 343 jobs.

“I am glad to welcome these companies to the Silver State to help to diversify our economy and create in-demand, high-skilled, and good-paying jobs,” Gov. Steve Sisolak said in a Wednesday news release from GOED. “As we continue to navigate the challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic, job creation and rebuilding our economy remains a top priority.”

Beyond Meat is also considering Texas, Arizona and Oregon as potential locations.

Officials approved a total of $29.6 million worth of abatements to 11 companies on Wednesday. If all plans move forward, the companies could bring 548 jobs to Nevada over the next two years and have a 10-year total economic impact worth $4.6 billion.
