US Foods Announces Plans for New $71.6 Million, 355,000-Square-Foot Distribution Center in California


SACRAMENTO, CA
Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

As we reported back in July, US Foods was awarded a California Competes Tax Credit to develop a center at McClellan Park. Many still wondered though: would these plans actually come to fruition? They needn’t wonder any more, because US Goods announced plans on October 30 to build a 355,000-square-foot distribution center in McClellan, California.

Bernie Orsini, Area President, Northern California, US Foods

“The expansion of the US Foods footprint into Sacramento is an important investment as we continue to serve independent restaurant operators across the region,” said Bernie Orsini, Area President for Northern California, US Foods. “We look forward to the increased capabilities the location will offer as we continue to execute on our ‘Great Food. Made Easy’ strategy.”

According to a press release, the facility will house thousands of foodservice products as well as a meat cutting facility and fleet maintenance operations.

Phil Serna, Supervisor, Sacramento County

“Sacramento County’s dynamic economy continues to foster many growth and expansion opportunities for businesses, and we are honored to welcome US Foods’ new distribution center to McClellan Park,” said County Supervisor Phil Serna. “I am proud that companies like US Foods choose to invest here and offer jobs for the community. I am excited about this partnership and the positive impact it will have for Sacramento County.”

“The California Competes Tax Credit helped support the multi-million dollar investment by US Foods in California,” said Panorea Avdis, Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. “GO-Biz is proud to work with US Foods, and businesses like it, to ensure investment in our state and regional economy and support growth in our state’s workforce.”
