Kehe distribution

Naperville, Illinois-based KeHE Distributors celebrated the grand opening of its new half-million square foot warehouse in Goodyear, Arizona, on Dec. 9.

The Goodyear community received the first look at the new distribution center during the day, which included a ribbon-cutting, tours of the new facility as well as locally-inspired and locally-sourced specialty foods served by food trucks.

As a part of KeHE’s ongoing mission to serve its communities, attendees were able to join in a Blessings in a Backpack serving event. More than 500 bags were packed with natural and organic food items from the KeHE warehouse, which will be delivered to children at Nevitte Elementary School in Phoenix who are facing food insecurity.

KeHE executives including Chris Sieburg, Jennifer Ricks and Geoff Goetz as well as local dignitaries including Councilmembers Wally Campbell and Laura Kaino and City Manager Julie Karins were on-site to meet community members and tour the facility.

KeHE chose Goodyear to expand its growing footprint due to its location. The new warehouse will allow KeHE to better serve its retail partners in the western region, including Sprouts Farmer’s Market and Albertson’s Safeway in the Arizona and Las Vegas markets, supplying them with natural and organic, specialty and fresh products.

Additionally, the center will bring 270 new jobs opportunities to the Greater Phoenix community.

KeHE Distributors LLC is the largest, pure-play distributor of natural and organic, specialty and fresh products to more than 30,000 natural food stores, chain and independent grocery stores, e-commerce retailers and other specialty products retailers throughout North America.

KeHE, a Certified B Corporation, has more than 5,500 employee-owners.
