Chick-fil-A will open its first company-owned distribution center in Cartersville, Georgia, creating 300 jobs.
“On behalf of Cartersville and Bartow County, it is truly our pleasure to extend the many advantages that this community has to the success of this ‘first of its kind’ milestone with Chick-fil-A,” says Bartow County Sole Commissioner Steve Taylor. “We believe that collaboration is key to mutual success and are excited to be part of this partnership between Cartersville-Bartow County, Chick-fil-A and the State of Georgia.”
The facility will sit on roughly 50 acres and will continue to innovate its supply chain practices. A pilot center will reportedly start accepting shipments at the location this summer, continuing until construction on the larger facility is completed next summer.
“Chick-fil-A is a respected Atlanta brand known for its excellent customer experience and innovative approach to an ever-changing market,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Having the company’s first distribution center located in metro Atlanta further demonstrates our region’s reputation as a logistics leader with the skilled workforce to support one of the world’s top quick-service restaurant chains.”
At the time of this publication, no additional locations for Chick-fil-A distribution centers have been planned.
