To accommodate the additional store locations opening in Dallas, H-E-B will be expanding its warehouse according to a Dallas Morning News article from June 29. They say,
“H-E-B is working with the Temple Economic Development Corp. to expand its existing distribution facilities to support new D-FW stores.
Temple officials said their discussions with H-E-B are for a 325,000-square-foot expansion that will create 100 jobs. The plan is to build an automated frozen distribution line pending final negotiations with the city of Temple.
The 1.05 million-square-foot existing facility, which first opened in 2010, can support 100 stores from Austin to Dallas, the company said. Temple is about 130 miles south of Dallas and along the major north-south route of I-35.
H-E-B stores in Frisco and Plano are under construction and will open later this year. The company hasn’t said exactly when yet. Two more H-E-B stores are under construction in McKinney and Allen, with opening dates in mid-2023.”
Both H-E-B and Temple Warehouse are delighted to do business together as both aim to progress according to a Supermarket News article from June 30 which reports,
“As H-E-B grows into new markets across Texas, expansion of our Temple facilities supports our commitment to be the best retailer in Texas,” Chad Madison, group vice president of H-E-B warehousing, said in a statement.
“It is our privilege to continue to work with H-E-B as they grow their presence in Temple, Texas,” Temple EDC President and CEO Adrian Cannady stated. “H-E-B has seen many cycles of growth and expansion throughout their time in Temple, and we are proud of the opportunities they continue to bring to our region. This expansion project, paired with Temple’s strategic location and immediate access to I-35, will work to strengthen H-E-B’s operations in Texas.”
“We are thrilled that H-E-B has chosen to expand its footprint in our city and look forward to the new opportunities that will be available to our community,” commented Erin Smith, assistant city manager of Temple.
H-E-B and Temple Warehouse’s project will start before this year ends and they are expecting its completion by 2024.
