KeHE Distributors, one of the largest grocery and natural distributors in North America, will open its 16th distribution center this October in Goodyear, Arizona, and bring new jobs to the area.
Naperville, Illinois-based KeHE has experienced rapid growth in recent years, resulting in an increase in distribution to more than 30,000 retail outlets across North America. The new distribution center will allow for faster distribution to its retail partners.
With KeHE expanding business in the western region of the United States, this new distribution center will provide faster and more efficient service to their western partners.
“KeHE is committed to serving its partners and bettering the communities in which we do business,” said Chris Sieburg, EVP of warehouse operations at KeHE. “We chose Goodyear to expand our footprint due to its prime location. This will allow us to better serve KeHE’s key retail partners, such as Sprouts Farmers Market and Albertson’s Safeway; bringing KeHE’s expansive natural, organic, specialty and fresh product portfolio to the Arizona and Las Vegas markets. The addition of the new facility will allow us to further our extensive growth plans while maintaining and enhancing the level of service our retailers expect and deserve.”
KeHE’s new half-million square foot distribution center will create new jobs in the Greater Phoenix area, including positions in operations, sales, merchandising, warehouse management and administration. With the distributor’s employee-ownership program and rapid company growth, the opening of the new center will bring new job and professional growth opportunities to the community while continuing to drive economic growth to the greater Phoenix area.
The new distribution center will host several hiring opportunities, including a job fair on Oct. 13-14 at 10950 W. Northview Ave. in Glendale, Arizona.

KeHE is one of the top wholesale organic food, specialty and fresh distributors in North America,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “KeHE has a solid reputation for community engagement and making a difference both locally and internationally through the KeHE Cares Foundation. I want to welcome KeHE Distributors to our growing city, and I wish them continued success.”
