Chick-fil-A Supply Plans Antioch, Tennessee, Distribution Hub

Chick-fil-A Supply will expand operations and launch its fourth U.S. distribution center in Antioch, Tennessee. The $16.3 million project is expected to create 45 new jobs over the next five years.

The facility, planned to open in late 2022, will work similarly to the company’s location in Cartersville, Georgia and another opening soon in Mebane, North Carolina by ensuring Chick-fil-A restaurants have the food and products needed to serve customers.

“We are excited to open a company operated distribution center in the greater Nashville area to serve Chick-fil-A restaurants as they face growing consumer demand and supply chain complexity. This investment will be vital as we continue innovating new solutions to address the unique needs of Chick-fil-A franchise operators, licensees, and their teams,” Josh Grote, executive director of distribution operations at Chick-fil-A Supply said.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Chick-fil-A, Inc., Chick-fil-A Supply is an innovative distribution service provider focused on understanding and meeting the unique needs of Chick-fil-A restaurants. Today, the nationally recognized restaurant business has more than 2,700 locations in 47 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada.

“With nearly 14,000 distribution and logistics companies across the state, Tennessee is primed to welcome a nationally recognized brand like Chick-fil-A to Davidson County. We are thrilled that Chick-fil-A has selected Antioch as the site for its newest distribution center and thank this company for its investment in Tennessee,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe noted.

“TVA and Nashville Electric Service congratulate Chick-fil-A on its decision to establish operations in Davidson County. Helping to attract and retain job opportunities and investment in the region is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to help further that mission and support companies like Chick-fil-A’s business success in the Valley,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development added.
