KeHE Distributors® Expands Aurora, Colorado, Distribution Center; Chris Graas Comments
AURORA, CO - As the name of my four-month-old niece, Aurora holds a special place in my heart. That is part of the reason my eyes were immediately drawn to KeHE Distributors® latest plans for expansion in Aurora, Colorado. Set to be unveiled on August 31, the expanded distribution center will be able to serve new, independent customers.
“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.
As noted in a release, this expansion will add 124,000 additional square feet across all temperature zones, including 33 percent more freezer space, 66 percent more capacity in cooler, and 43 percent more in dry space.
In addition to serving new, independent customers, the expansion of this distribution center will bring new employment opportunities to the Aurora and Boulder areas including Selector, Forklift Operator, and Receiver positions. KeHE will bring new jobs and professional growth opportunities to the community while continuing to drive economic growth to the area.
