On September 1st, KeHE celebrated the expansion of their Aurora, Colorado distribution center.
The ribbon cutting event included a photo booth, local cuisine, a welcome address from KeHE President and CEO Brandon Barnholt as well as tours of the 124,000 square foot facility.
The expansion includes 33% more freezer space, 66% more capacity in the cooler and 43% more dry space. The goal is to service new independent retailers while offering existing customers a faster, more efficient level of service.
Starting in January, Aurora will be available for the New @ KeHE item launch program. Some of the key Indies are Clark’s Market, Leaver’s Locavore, Choice Markets, Nilwot Market, Happy Heart Specialty Foods, Bread & Butter Neighborhood Market, Keller’s Farm Store, Tallin Market, Edwards Meat, and Elephant Cloud.
