US Foods plans to open a distribution center in Seabrook, N.H. to better serve its customers throughout New England.
The company currently services this customer base from its facility in Peabody, Mass., which has approximately 188,000 square feet. The new facility will offer more than 500,000 square feet of space, including additional dry and cold storage and fleet fueling and maintenance areas.
The company has partnered with the ESI Group to execute the renovation of the new facility to ensure it operates as efficiently as possible. Construction is expected to begin at the end of June and the company aims to move its operations into the new building in the first quarter of 2015.
With approximately $22bn in annual revenue, US Foods offers more than 350,000 products and employs approximately 25,000 people in more than 60 locations nationwide. US Foods is headquartered in Rosemont, Ill.
