E-commerce site to invest $10 million into a new distribution and fulfillment center in Albany

Atlanta, GA -- Governor Nathan Deal announced today that WebstaurantStore, an e-commerce brand that sells restaurant equipment and supplies, will create 150 jobs and invest $10 million into a distribution and fulfillment center in Albany over the next three years.

“E-commerce companies such as WebstaurantStore choose Georgia because they can trust that here they will find opportunities for innovation and growth,” said Deal. “With our skilled, dedicated workforce and business-friendly environment, I have no doubt that WebstaurantStore will remain highly competitive in today’s ever-changing market.”

WebstaurantStore will locate to an existing 472,000-square-foot facility. The company’s Albany distribution center will serve clients in the Southeast and will help meet the company’s goal of providing one-day shipping to its customers. Hiring is expected to begin in December 2015.

“We are very excited to be coming to the Albany area and look forward to being part of the community for many years to come,” said WebstaurantStore President Dave Groff.

WebstaurantStore, headquartered in Lancaster, Pa., is the leading restaurant supply store, with more than 4 million orders shipped to date. The company’s current three U.S. distribution centers provide restaurant supplies and equipment to the foodservice industry and individual customers worldwide.

Walt Farrell, director of advanced manufacturing, and David Dunagan, project manager on the logistics team at the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), assisted WebstaurantStore on behalf of the state along with the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission and Matt Clovin with Electric Cities of Georgia.

“Albany is proud to be known as a great location for worldwide distribution and logistics effectiveness, and we continue to bolster that reputation with the addition of WebstaurantStore,” said Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission President Justin Strickland. “Our transportation infrastructure, our workforce and our low costs of doing business makes Albany one of the most attractive sites for national and international companies and allows them to efficiently serve their growing base of customers.”

Investment in logistics and distribution in Georgia grew nearly 152 percent over last fiscal year’s numbers, representing more than $600 million in investment during FY 2014.

“Georgia’s solid logistics and distribution sector continues to attract thriving companies such as WebstaurantStore,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “Our No. 1 business climate, which includes a growing network of customers and six interstates that connect to 80 percent of the U.S. population,  will help WebstaurantStore better reach customers quickly and efficiently.”
