HelloFresh, America’s leading meal kit company, announced today plans to open a new distribution center in Phoenix, Arizona. The nearly 440,000 square-foot facility located at 1850 South 71st Avenue will become the company’s largest shipping and fulfillment center globally, supporting growing demand for HelloFresh meal kits and enabling HelloFresh to better serve new and existing customers on the West Coast.
Joining HelloFresh’s other West Coast facility located in Richmond, CA, the newly built facility in Phoenix will begin operations in Q4 2021 and could provide as many as 1,200 new jobs over time. Phoenix is a highly efficient logistics hub with access to major routes and provides access to a strong labor pool. The new distribution center in addition to the Richmond facility will allow HelloFresh to strengthen its West Coast capabilities.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our operational footprint on the West Coast,” said Uwe Voss, CEO of HelloFresh U.S. “Joining our Richmond facility, this new Phoenix distribution center will help strengthen our presence in the region and further support our mission of excellent service and delivery of delicious meals. We also look forward to tapping in to the region’s talented labor pool and making a positive impact on the local community.”
