US Foods Opens New England Distribution Center
US Foods is bringing a whole new level of convenience and value to New England-area chefs and restaurateurs as it opens its newest distribution center in Seabrook, New Hampshire.
“The new efficient and modern facility allows us to better serve our approximately 3,000 customers throughout the New England area and provides the nearly 300 employees in the location with an optimal working environment,” says John Glynn, president, Boston Division, US Foods. “We are thrilled to join the Seabrook business community and continue to bring our innovative products and business solutions to chefs, restaurant owners, and foodservice operators throughout the area.”
The new 500,000 square-foot facility is LEED certified and includes a number of green enhancements, such as energy efficient lighting and a cascade refrigeration system that uses carbon dioxide as a refrigeration fluid in place of ammonia, reducing environmental impact and increasing energy efficiency. A dedicated fleet-fueling and maintenance area will further help the company operate even more efficiently.
With a unique understanding of the needs of today’s chefs and restaurateurs, US Foods takes an integrated approach to be the easiest to do business with in the industry. Building on its more than 150 years of experience in the food and foodservice industry, the company is focused on bringing innovative products to its customers and sharing its expertise from working with more than 250,000 restaurants and foodservice operators across the country to help its New England customers realize greater business success.
