WebstaurantStore Plans $10 Million Distribution-Fulfillment Center In Albany, Georgia

Over the next three years, WebstaurantStore, an e-commerce brand that sells restaurant equipment and supplies, will create 150 jobs and invest $10 million into a distribution and fulfillment center in Albany, Georgia.

WebstaurantStore will locate to an existing 472,000-square-foot facility. The company’s Albany distribution center will serve clients in the Southeast and will help meet the company’s goal of providing one-day shipping to its customers. Hiring is expected to begin in December 2015.

“We are very excited to be coming to the Albany area and look forward to being part of the community for many years to come,” said WebstaurantStore President Dave Groff.

“Albany is proud to be known as a great location for worldwide distribution and logistics effectiveness, and we continue to bolster that reputation with the addition of WebstaurantStore,” said Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission President Justin Strickland. “Our transportation infrastructure, our workforce and our low costs of doing business makes Albany one of the most attractive sites for national and international companies and allows them to efficiently serve their growing base of customers.”

“E-commerce companies such as WebstaurantStore choose Georgia because they can trust that here they will find opportunities for innovation and growth,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “With our skilled, dedicated workforce and business-friendly environment, I have no doubt that WebstaurantStore will remain highly competitive in today’s ever-changing market.”

Walt Farrell, Director of Advanced Manufacturing, and David Dunagan, Project Manager on the Logistics Team at the Georgia Department of Economic Development, assisted WebstaurantStore on behalf of the state along with the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission and Matt Clovin with Electric Cities of Georgia.
