Specialty Foods Firm KeHE Distributors Selects Stockton, California, For Distribution Hub
“This is an exciting time in our organization,” said Gene Carter, Chief Operating Officer, KeHE. “We are continuing to fulfill the needs of our current and future customers with this distribution center. It will expand our product assortment offerings and reach in Northern California. In addition, we are looking forward to growing the KeHE employee base on the west coast.”
The building has been vacant since it was originally constructed by Fresh & Easy in 2009. Fresh & Easy filed bankruptcy before ever occupying the building, which makes KeHE the first tenant to utilize the space. The company anticipates 200 new jobs at build-out in March. Recruitment is underway for managers, supervisors, delivery drivers and order selectors.
“Stockton’s strength in transportation and logistics paired with its ideal central location and available workforce made it a perfect choice for KeHE’s latest operation and we couldn’t be happier with their decision,” said Micah Runner, the City’s Economic Development Director. “They are a great employer and will bring a much needed boost tour local economy.”
