Oct 17, 2007 11:10 AM
US Foodservice Inc plans to invest $100 million in capital projects that will significantly expand its operations. These include the construction of a new facility in Ogden UT and major expansions of current facilities in Boca Raton FL and Plymouth MN.
In Ogden, US Foodservice will build a new full-service, broadline food distribution facility on 36 acres of land it recently purchased. The ultra-modern, multi-temperature 265,000-square-foot facility will be designed to accommodate future expansions in the Intermountain West region. The new site will initially employ approximately 300 people and will replace the present facility in Clearfield UT. Distribution is expected to begin in late 2008.
In South Florida, US Foodservice is adding 123,000 square feet to its existing facility in Boca Raton. When completed in about 18 months, the 300,000-sq-ft facility will allow the firm to expand offerings and enhance service to South Florida. US Foodservice’s existing Pompano Beach operation will be consolidated into the Boca Raton facility when complete.
In Plymouth, the company is increasing the size of its existing facility to add 100,000 square feet of new space, which will allow for expansions to the dry warehouse, refrigerated dock space, and freezer. This will result in a 50% increase in the facility’s capacity.
