H-E-B will be expanding its Temple, Texas distribution facilities with a new automated frozen distribution line.
Pending final negotiations with Temple EDC and the city of Temple, the project will grow the company’s current facility footprint by 325,000 square feet and will add more than 100 jobs to the local economy.
“It is our privilege to continue to work with H-E-B as they grow their presence in Temple, Texas” said Adrian Cannady, president and CEO of Temple Economic Development Corporation. “H-E-B has seen many cycles of growth and expansion throughout their time in Temple and we are proud of the opportunities they continue to bring to our region. This expansion project, paired with Temple’s strategic location and immediate access to I-35, will work to strengthen H-E-B’s operations in Texas.”
The warehouse supports more than 100 H-E-B retail stores across the region, from Austin to Dallas, and has been operating in the Temple community since 2010. With more than 117 years in business, H-E-B is a large independently-owned food retailers and sees $36 billion in annual sales. The company is in the permit stage of the expansion with construction slated to begin by the end of 2022, and project completion expected in 2024.
