H-E-B to Build New Facility in Houston


HOUSTON, TX
Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

H-E-B Grocery Co. is reportedly opening a new 64,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Southeast Texas. 

According to the Houston Business Journal, sources within the San Antonio-based grocery organization confirmed that the retailer intends to open a new snack manufacturing facility less than a mile away from H-E-B’s distribution center at 4625 Windfern Road in Houston, Texas.

This will be only the company’s second snack manufacturing facility. It’s first is a 40,000-square-foot facility located in San Antonio dedicated to manufacturing potato and corn products including tortilla chips. According to H-E-B’s website, the San Antonio facility operates 24 hours a day and processes 35 million pounds of potatoes and 10 million pounds of white and yellow corn.

Neither construction dates nor number of prospective employees have been announced by H-E-B, but the Houston Business Journal noted that Joeris General Construction has already filed a commercial construction permit for foundation and site work at the plant’s location for $3.6 million.

H-E-B has recently made headlines with a series of generous donations to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The company has also announced plans to introduce a new “urban prototype” store in Houston and earlier this year.

Deli Market News will continue to report with more on important developments in retail and in the dairy, deli, and bakery industries.
