BOULDER - Bobo's Oat Bars, a maker of snack bars based in Boulder, will be moving its manufacturing operation to a larger site at the beginning of next year.

Ten-year-old Bobo's will move to a 12,000-square-foot space at 6325 Gunpark Drive in Boulder County, a space three times the size of its current plant.

The brand features a line of snack bars in 14 flavors, including four gluten-free, all made with organic and natural non-GMO ingredients.

"Our growth has been phenomenal over the past few years, due in large part to more people asking for high-fiber, nutrient dense snacks and foods that taste great, the fact that we offer several gluten-free varieties, made with organic and non-GMO ingredients, and a lot of hard work," said Beryl Stafford, founder and president of Bobo's Oat Bars. "The new space will open a lot of doors for us in terms of meeting growing consumer demand, and offering new flavors and varieties. We're very excited about what's to come."

Bobo's Oat Bars has recorded an annual growth rate of 50 percent over the past three years. With the new manufacturing space, the company can enhance automation, production capabilities and add hire staff.

The company has had its success nationally in natural food and specialty stores, but it plans a push into mainstream grocery stores, and introduce new flavors in 2014.

Bobo's Oat Bars was on the state of Colorado's Office of Economic Development and International Trade's 50 Colorado Companies to Watch list in 2011.
