H-E-B Expands Current Facility In Temple To Over 1 Million Sq. Feet
TEMPLE, TEXAS – When the lockdowns started and the grocery stores were swarmed with customers, H-E-B was ready for the additional demand. They had prepared in advance and their warehouse was stocked and ready to reload the shelves. So, it’s no surprise they are moving forward with an expansion to their warehouse in Temple.
Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) today announced the expansion of H-E-B’s Distribution facilities in Temple, Texas. This project will grow H-E-B’s current facility footprint of 800,000 to 1,050,000 sq. ft., allowing them to expand their warehouse capacity and operations.
“We are thrilled that H-E-B has decided to grow their operations here in Temple, Texas” said Adrian Cannady, President and CEO of Temple Economic Development Corporation. “Temple is a highly strategic area for businesses looking to serve the largest metropolitan markets in Texas. The city offers immediate access to I-35 and is within three hours of 80 percent of Texas’ population. We are proud that H-E-B is taking advantage of these opportunities, a decision that will strengthen both their operations and our local community.”
H-E-B’s Temple Distribution warehouse supports over 50 H-E-B retail stores across the region, from Austin to Dallas, and has been operating in the Temple community since 2010. The company is in the permit stage of the expansion with construction slated to begin by the end of 2020, and project completion expected in 2021.
