NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HelloFresh SE, the world’s leading meal kit company, announced today the leasing of new distribution centers in Newnan, Georgia and Irving, Texas, providing increased capacity through expanded supply chain capabilities to support growing demand in key Southeastern and central-Texas locations. This expansion will allow HelloFresh to accommodate rapidly increasing demand and better serve new and existing customers.
The 210,000 square foot facility in Georgia is HelloFresh’s first in the Southeast and will begin operating in the third quarter of 2020, scaling throughout the remainder of the year. This new distribution center will support shorter delivery distances throughout the region and provide job opportunities to more than 750 workers across operations, meal distribution and management roles.
Additionally, HelloFresh announced a new, state-of-the-art Irving, Texas facility that will increase overall meal kit production and distribution capacity by more than 30%. The nearly 375,000 square foot distribution center - HelloFresh’s largest facility to date - will include office space, cold storage, packing and shipping areas, and could provide as many as 1,200 new jobs for the area as HelloFresh expands its presence to continue supporting rapidly growing demand and new customer growth in the South and Midwest regions of the U.S. Individuals interested in career opportunities with HelloFresh are encouraged to visit hellofresh.com/careers/locations/us for additional information.
