An expansion is in the works for KeHE Distributors® as its Aurora, Colorado, distribution center will be receiving some TLC. The latest expansion plan will be unveiled on August 31.
“KeHE is thrilled to announce this expansion, especially in such a key location,” said Chris Graas, Vice President of Sales. “Our goal is to continue to provide exceptional and expanded service to the region. Since Colorado is a hub for product innovation and sustainability within the food and beverage industry, KeHE is committed to having a significant impact and presence in this community. By establishing an innovation destination and creating a place to experience KeHE Goodness, we are eager to expand our scope and business in Boulder to better serve our partners.”
KeHE has experienced rapid growth in recent years, revealing an increase in distribution to over 30,000 retail outlets across North America to date. This new expansion aims to serve new independent customers.
