BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — It may have taken a little while to catch on, but Pod Pack has seen rapid growth over the past few years.

The Baton Rouge-based company, which manufactures single-serving pods of coffee and tea for everyone from national brands such as Folgers and Maxwell House to local favorites such as Community Coffee and PJ’s Coffee, has seen its sales more than quadruple since 2010. Last year, Pod Pack made 100 million coffee pods.

Pod Pack announced last month it would spend $10.1 million to expand its manufacturing facility.

Pod Pack would not release sales figures, but Tom Martin, Pod Pack’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, tells The Advocate annual revenue doubled from 2012 to 2013 and is on track to double again this year.
