Cheney Brothers’ Plans Florence County, South Carolina, Distribution Hub
The location at Pee Dee Commerce City East Industrial Park will consist of a modern 400,000-square-foot refrigerator/freezer distribution facility, over 45 loading docks, and a Cheney Express and exquisite culinary kitchen.
“Cheney Brothers’ market share continues to grow across the Southeast, and it was important to us to meet our customer demands in South Carolina. Florence was the logical choice to locate the new facility, considering the great access and the superior interstate system of transportation. The city, county and state have been very supportive and easy to work with throughout the process,” Cheney Brothers CEO and Chairman of the Board Byron Russell said.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
“South Carolina has continued to show that it is the right place for companies to do business, especially for companies looking to move products efficiently to customers. Our state continues to see its distribution and logistics sector grow, and today’s announcement by Cheney Brothers is another indication of that success,” said Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
Cheney Brothers is a family owned and operated broadline distributor offering over 64,000 stocked items from gourmet to everyday. Cheney EXPRESS is open to the public and carries frozen, refrigerated and dry products with carry out service to your vehicle. We have been delivering Southern hospitality since 1925.
