Best Market Locates Headquarters-Distribution Hub In Long Island, New York
The new headquarters, located in the former Entenmann’s factory, will also serve as a food incubator and distribution center. The new facility will anchor a proposed regional food hub at the former Entenmann’s site and allow Best Market to further expand its overall operations across Long Island.
President/CEO of Best Market Rebecca Philbert said, “Best Market is excited to resurrect the former Entenmann’s facility which has been an important staple in the Long Island economy for many years. Building a corporate office, distribution center, production facility and a supermarket at this location will create needed jobs and will greatly benefit Bay Shore and all of Long Island.”
As part of its expansion, Best Market will consolidate its Long Island headquarters and distribution operations into one location, occupying approximately 200,000 square feet of the former Entenmann’s factory, which has been closed since 2014. The move will return the 520,000-square-foot building to productive use, and Best Market will be the location’s first anchor tenant, according to the Governor’s Office.
Approximately 100 of Best Market’s more than 2,000 Long Island employees will move to the Bay Shore location, where the company will also establish limited food processing operations. Best Market will also establish an incubator for emerging food businesses.
“Best Market is a great Long Island success story, and it is only fitting that they will be creating jobs and growing their business in a location that had been a major part of the Bay Shore community,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “This expansion underscores the state’s commitment to improving our business climate, helping New York businesses flourish and regional economies thrive.”
