Kozy Shack Enterprises, Inc.
Kozy Shack is a family-owned business that had been producing dairy products (puddings) since 1967 and had grown into a major manufacturer with international distribution. When the company approached the IDA for assistance it had its headquarters as well as a warehouse and manufacturing plant in Hicksville, Nassau County. The company also had manufacturing facilities in California and Ireland. The Company was looking to expand its manufacturing operations in Nassau County through expansion of its current warehouse building by 10,000 square feet and the purchase of neighboring property and construction of a new building of 30,000 square feet. The project would retain 228 jobs and create an additional 58 jobs.
