WebstaurantStore, a supplier to food service professionals around the world, expands operations with a new distribution facility in Ellabell, Georgia.
The new facility will create 213 new positions in Bryan County, representing more than $87 million in investment and the company’s largest expansion in Georgia.
"Companies like WebstaurantStore continue to recognize Georgia is the best place to do business by expanding here again and again," said Governor Brian Kemp as he announced the expansion earlier today.
"Our world-class logistics infrastructure and business-friendly environment make it possible for companies to operate in every corner of the state while still enjoying direct access to national and international markets and a highly-qualified workforce," Kemp continued.
Established in 2004, WebstaurantStore provides customers with an easy-to-use website to meet their industry-specific purchasing needs.
With a focus on convenience and hundreds of thousands of products available, WebstaurantStore is the largest online supply store for restaurant service professionals and individual customers worldwide.
The company currently employs more than 680 Georgians in two counties in onsite locations and various remote locations.
"We are pleased to continue our operations in Georgia and the Georgia Ports Authority market, with what will become our largest distribution center to date,” said Caleb Clugston, Vice President of Network Optimization at WebstaurantStore.
“The labor pool and skilled logistics workforce of the greater Savannah area made our decision easy when selecting another site for distribution," said Clugston. “We look forward to continued growth and positively impacting the community as well as the State of Georgia for many years to come."
As WebstaurantStore expands the new facility will be located at 54 Logistics Drive in Ellabell.
The new facility will handle the distribution of large restaurant equipment such as commercial indoor/outdoor furniture, fast-moving full case quantities, and many other industrial products.
The company will be hiring shipping and receiving managers and associates, as well as inventory control and quality assurance associates.
