The Gold Kist Chicken company is a food industry that was founded around the late 1950s. The founders of this company were J.C. Love and Leonard Rawls, Jr., both from Georgia. This company had two main branches at its start, one in Albany, GA and the other in Newnan, GA which are about an hour apart. Since then it has grown to be one of the most popular chicken companies today with North Carolina being its biggest production state as well as having operations all throughout the southeastern part of United States.
Since they have been around for more than 50 years they have expanded their business multiple times over the decades, although still retaining their core business values by producing fresh poultry products with top-quality ingredients while continuously improving their company to be more efficient with resources. Today they are under the management of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation which is a leading producer and marketer of fresh and frozen chicken products that has operations in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil.
