The Memphis TN division of US Foodservice Inc has agreed to purchase the building it occupies at 5900 Holmes Road from Belz Enterprises.
While the company previously leased 175,000 square feet of space in the building, the company will now expand its operations to encompass the building’s 385,000 square feet of working space by the end of 2011. The additional space will enable the division to increase its operations to meet the demand of its increasing number of customers in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
“We are doubling the size of our facility to dramatically increase the number of products we offer our customers,” said Joe Campbell, division president, US Foodservice–Memphis. “We appreciate the support of the City of Memphis/Shelby County Industrial Development Board, the state of Tennessee, and the Tennessee Valley Authority and look forward to creating as many as 60 new, high-quality jobs as our operations grow in this outstanding community.”
The Memphis division employs more than 200 people.
“We evaluated opportunities in both Tennessee and Mississippi before deciding to expand our Memphis facility,” said Campbell. “We’ve been a member of the Memphis business community for more than 50 years and are looking forward to continuing our tradition of serving the community for many years to come.”
US Foodservice employs about 25,000 associates in more than 60 locations nationwide. Its more than 250,000 customers, include independent restaurants, government operations, healthcare and hospitality entities, educational institutions, and multi-unit restaurant companies.
