Green BEAN Delivery LLC, an online home delivery provider of organic produce and all natural groceries, plans to expand its headquarters in Indianapolis, creating up to 105 new jobs by 2024.
The homegrown-Hoosier company, which is a subsidiary of BEAN LLC, will invest $3.84 million to expand its headquarter and warehouse operations on more than five acres of land in Indianapolis. Green BEAN Delivery, which currently provides its online grocery service in four states and dozens of communities across Indiana, will continue to grow its workforce.
Founded in 2007, Green BEAN Delivery is an online home delivery grocery service that provides a full line of fresh produce and all-natural groceries year round to its membership base. The company’s mission is to make local and sustainable foods convenient, affordable and accessible to communities throughout the Midwest. The company helps support several local food businesses, including its own 60-acre organic farm. Offering delivery to customers’ homes and workplaces, Green BEAN Delivery operates and delivers in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Missouri.
“After entertaining multiple proposals from different municipalities and states, BEAN LLC chose the state of Indiana and city of Indianapolis as its home,” said Matt Ewer, CEO and owner of BEAN LLC. “City and state support as well as the centralized location of Indianapolis to the markets we serve were important factors in our decision. We were pleased to see both the city and state come together to support a locally grown, family owned and operated grocery company. BEAN LLC remains steadfast and committed to creating viable change and creative solutions within our communities’ food systems.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered BEAN LLC up to $700,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis will consider additional tax abatement at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
“People these days want to live in places where they can easily access healthy, locally-sourced food,” said Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “The expansion and relocation of Green BEAN Delivery’s headquarters to Indy will make us a healthier and more attractive place to live, and bring hundreds of new jobs to our city.”
The BEAN in Green BEAN Delivery stands for the principles that guide the company’s mission: Biodynamic, Education, Agriculture and Nutrition. Other company initiatives include Tiny Footprint Distribution, focused on distributing locally made products to retail stores; EcOhio Farm, a partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo; and Feel Good Farm, Green BEAN Delivery’s first certified organic farm in Indiana.
