On October 6th, 2022, KeHE Distributors celebrated the grand opening of their nearly one million square foot DC, their largest facility to date.
The ribbon cutting event included a photo booth, local cuisine, presentations from KeHE officials and tours of the new facility.
The facility will provide over 500 new jobs and growth opportunities for the community and KeHE. The enhanced technology, such as their 210,000-square-foot climate-controlled ice cream room, will aim to improve service levels to its partners.
“The opening of the new Dallas facility strengthens KeHE’s ability to deliver improved service levels to our current and prospective customers,” said Era Vaughn, Vice President of Operations at KeHE. “Aligning with KeHE’s focus on optimizing our operational excellence, the Dallas facility enhances our distribution network with advancements in technology and automation, enabling our partners to grow and prosper.”
“We are delighted that KeHE has chosen Dallas for their newest and largest distribution center,” said Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson. “This is not only providing a plethora of new job opportunities to the members of our community, but it is also driving serious economic growth for the city of Dallas. We are incredibly eager to see the benefits this new center will bring to our community.”
