US Foods to Build Distribution Facility in California
Rosemont, Illinois-headquartered US Foods Holding Corp. on October 31 announced construction plans for a 355,000-square-foot distribution center in McClellan, California. The facility will house thousands of foodservice products as well as a meat cutting facility and fleet maintenance operations.
The $71.6 million investment will allow the company to more efficiently service independent restaurant customers across Northern California. Construction of the LEED-certified facility is expected to start mid-2019 and open at the end of 2020.
“The expansion of the US Foods footprint into Sacramento is an important investment as we continue to serve independent restaurant operators across the region,” said Bernie Orsini, area president for Northern California. “We look forward to the increased capabilities the location will offer as we continue to execute on our ‘Great Food. Made Easy.’ strategy.”
“The California Competes Tax Credit helped support the multi-million dollar investment by US Foods in California,” said Panorea Avdis, director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. “GO-Biz is proud to work with US Foods, and businesses like it, to ensure investment in our state and regional economy and support growth in our state’s workforce.”
Barry Broome, president and ceo of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, commented: "The US Foods expansion is a big win for the entire region. The new facility is projected to drive more than $59 million in direct and indirect economic impact from the job growth alone."
