ROSEMONT, ILL. — US Foods Holding Corp. is investing $71.6 million to build a new distribution center in McClellan, Calif. The facility will allow the company to more efficiently serve its independent restaurant customers across Northern California, US Foods said.

The 355,000-square-foot facility will house food service products as well as a meat cutting facility and fleet maintenance operations. Construction of the LEED-certified facility is expected to begin in mid-2019 and open at the end of 2020.

“The expansion of the US Foods footprint into Sacramento is an important investment as we continue to serve independent restaurant operators across the region,” said Bernie Orsini, area president for Northern California at US Foods. “We look forward to the increased capabilities the location will offer as we continue to execute on our ‘Great Food. Made Easy.’ strategy.”
