Sprouts Gains New Distribution Center Through Expanded Americold Partnership

Sprouts Gains New Distribution Center Through Expanded Americold Partnership


ATLANTA, GA
Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

As the company continues on its mission to expand its footprint to more than 250 stores in 15 states, Sprouts Farmers Markets has announced the opening of a new temperature-controlled distribution center for its Southeastern operations. The 260,000 square-foot facility, purchased in July of 2016, reflects the expansion of the retailer's partnership with Americold.

Fred Boehler, President and CEO, Americold“The opening of our East Point site allows us to support Sprouts and other food retailers that are rapidly expanding throughout the Southeast. We’re very happy to bring new jobs and career opportunities to our hometown Atlanta community,” Fred Boehler, President and CEO of Americold, told the American Journal of Transportation. “Americold is thrilled to be able to work with Sprouts as an anchor tenant in this facility and provide the additional, dedicated capacity needed as they continue to expand their healthy grocery operations from coast to coast.”

The East Point, GA site will serve as a distribution center for Sprouts’ Southeastern operations, which the company has plans to expand considerably in 2017. The site offers two temperature zones at 34F and 55F—ideal for Sprouts’ perishable warehousing needs.

Dan Sanders, Chief Operations Officer, Sprouts Farmers Market“As Sprouts continues to grow, we’re deeply invested in enhancing our operations and developing our team members so they can deliver the best experience possible for our guests,” said Sprouts Chief Operations Officer Dan Sanders in a statement earlier this year. “Sprouts team members are inspired by the company’s growth and our ‘healthy living for less’ approach to grocery shopping, and we offer tremendous opportunities for career progression, especially in the Southeast."
