Arcadia Cold celebrates first groundbreaking

June 10, 2022
A team of cold chain industry leaders reaches a key milestone in their plan to develop a national network of facilities with the start of construction at Arcadia's Burleson, Texas site.

Arcadia Cold recently broke ground on its new Burleson Cold Storage site located just outside Fort Worth, Texas.

The event marked Arcadia’s first groundbreaking for a network of cold storage facilities it is developing in strategic markets across the country, the company said. The Burleson site is expected to be operational in the second quarter of next year.

“Arcadia was thrilled to welcome members of Burleson’s community to the groundbreaking ceremony,” said Chris Hughes, Arcadia’s CEO. “While this project benefits from its strategic location in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth market, the city and county officials in Burleson have been instrumental in bringing this project to fruition.

“At every stage of the project development, the City of Burleson and Burleson City Economic Development has been a valued partner and we look forward to bringing significant economic growth and jobs to the City of Burleson.”

Once complete, the Burleson location will be a frozen and refrigerated distribution center facility with 43,000 pallet positions designed to support high-volume throughput handling services, including full pallet management and case picking, Arcadia said. The site has access to U.S. Interstate 35W in the center of the Dallas/Ft. Worth distribution market.

Speakers at the event included Hughes; Anthony Rinaldi, founder and managing principal of Saxum Real Estate; Matt Hirsch, president of Primus Builders; Stacy Singleton, Burleson’s fire marshal; Alex Philips, economic development director for the Burleson Economic Development Council; Dan McClendon, mayor pro tem and Council Place 5; and Bryan Lynch, executive vice president of the Global Cold Chain Alliance.
