QCD hosted the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of its newest facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. The new, state-of-the-art distribution center is located in the West Valley City community and provides distribution services to Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and Chipotle.
“The Salt Lake City distribution center is QCD’s sixth new DC to open in the past three years and reflects the company’s commitment to providing excellent last mile service to our customers in key areas of the country,” said Ryan Hammer, Corporate Vice President and President, Quality Custom Distribution. “To see this location grow from a small depot facility to a state-of-the-art foodservice distribution center that provides the dispatching of routes to our valued customers seven days a week within a much tighter service radius is a great milestone for this team and our customers that we service.”
The 57,000-square-foot distribution center opened October 14 and officially completed its first full day of operations, servicing various customers in the QSR industry throughout all of the Salt Lake City, Richfield and Logan areas in Utah, as well as parts of Nevada, Wyoming, and Idaho. One of 19 strategically located QCD distribution locations across the country, the Salt Lake City facility leverages technology such as a Warehouse Management System (WMS) for all inbound and outbound freight, including voice-guided selection, and has a program to help warehouse associates transition into Class A drivers.
