Imperfect Foods Announces New Warehouse Deal
BALTIMORE, MD - Due to the sweeping effects of COVID-19, the retail landscape has been in flux as evolving updates have changed shopper habits. As more consumers continue to opt for at-home meals and online food ordering, California-based Imperfect Foods has seen enough growth in its service demand that it has announced it will be opening a second warehouse in the Baltimore suburbs, just two years after opening its first warehouse in the area in Severn, Maryland.
"We are signing up thousands of new customers each week, and we cover food that could have gone to waste," said Philip Behn, CEO of Imperfect Foods, in a statement in April. "Our service is safe, reliable, and affordable. We are humbled and happy to be part of the safety net of the many communities that we serve, hoping to help them at a time when they need it the most."
The company has signed a lease for a 110,000-square-foot warehouse in Hanover, Maryland, to meet the growing demand for home deliveries, according to an article from Baltimore Business Journal. The move to open another warehouse comes just a few months after Imperfect Foods added an additional 124 workers to its roster in the spring to help meeting rising demand.
Imperfect Foods' new warehouse will be located at 7481 Coca Cola Drive in Anne Arundel County and adds to the existing 76,000-square-foot warehouse located at 8024 Telegraph Road in Severn. Deliveries from the Severn warehouse serve those in the Baltimore, College Park, and Silver Spring areas.
