Reinhart Foodservice Expands Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, Operations
The company is constructing a 155,000-square-foot addition to its 169,000-square-foot facility in Mt. Pleasant. The expansion will also include rehabilitation and the addition of cold storage as well as machinery and equipment.
“Reinhart is an important part of PFG’s Performance Foodservice division and we’re excited to grow our operations in Western Pennsylvania,” said Craig Hoskins, PFG President & Chief Operating Officer. “We have many valued customers and great opportunities in the region, and we’re looking forward to adding to the tremendous talent we already have to serve them.”
The company received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $72,000 Pennsylvania First grant for the project.
“Reinhart Foodservice provides critical goods to the region, and the commonwealth is pleased to invest in the expansion of their operations,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “This project will create and retain jobs in two counties and provide new opportunities for workers in neighboring communities, while ensuring the company has the space and equipment needed to continue to serve customers across Pennsylvania and beyond.”
Reinhart Foodservice is a Performance Food Group Company offering poultry, seafood, dairy, produce, glassware, china, utensils, coffee, juices, foodservice equipment, paper, disposables, chemicals, dry groceries, deli and bakery supplies, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables, tabletop and portion control products, deli meats, cheeses, pickles, and refrigerated salads. Reinhart has 26 locations across the US and has two support offices based in Chicago, Illinois and La Crosse, Wisconsin.
“The decision by a national corporation to expand locally sends a strong signal of confidence,” said Mark Anthony Thomas, president of the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance, the economic development affiliate of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development. “Expansions of existing businesses in southwestern Pennsylvania have accounted for the lion’s share of regional economic activity over the last 14 years. Reinhart Foodservice’s growth plans continue that trend with multi-million dollar capital investment and job creation. This reinforces the return that comes from our commitment to investing in making the Pittsburgh region the place where companies, established and newcomers, will find the assets and ecosystems that support their success.”
