US Foods has finished the expansion of a distribution center in Louisiana. Starting in 2019, the construction nearly tripled the facility’s footprint. It will now house a demonstration kitchen and training center. Also available to customers will be the onsite technology tutorials that will walk them through US Foods’ ever expanding digital presence where they provide business solutions, among other services. The larger center will ensure a firm and reliable distributive presence in Louisiana and Mississippi.

“This is an important milestone for our growing Louisiana team as we continue to partner with local foodservice operators who support our vibrant and thriving New Orleans community,” said Dan Hildreth, US Foods market vice president. “We value our role in helping our local restaurants ‘Make It’ with our differentiated and expanded resources and services and look forward to serving additional markets with our growing service footprint.”

The grand opening is scheduled for November and will focus on local customers and businesses, with tours and demonstrations arranged for entertainment.
