Quirch Foods LLC is opening its sixth distribution center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The expansion is a component of the growth of the company, which seeks to continue expanding and leveraging its distribution reach.
Currently operating with five distribution centers in the Southeast and the Caribbean, the sixth facility is set to begin operations in early March. The addition of this warehouse facility extends the company’s reach and ability to service independent and national supermarkets in and around the Carolinas and northward.
“We continue to look for opportunities to expand our reach and find strategic locations which will facilitate a well-executed distribution. The facility in Greensboro does just that,” said Frank Grande, president of Quirch Foods. “Alongside the continued growth of the independent grocer and the food industry in general, we feel that this distribution center will be a great complement to our complete distribution network.”
