Consolidated Distribution Corporation LLC, a provider of QSR, fast casual and casual dining supply chain solutions in the U.S., has opened a new Dallas redistribution center to further optimize supply chain movement. It marks the second expansion for CDC beyond its home market of Chicago following the July 2010 opening of a redistribution center in Atlanta.
Located in Dallas, the new 50,000-square-foot space will specialize in the redistribution of ambient goods, including foodservice, janitorial, sanitation and safety items for CDC customers.
The new Dallas facility will increase the company’s dry capacity for warehousing and redistribution by 14 percent, according to Thomas Geza Varga, vice president of business development. Among the CDC QSR customers that will benefit from the new distribution hub is Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op LLC. UFPC is the exclusive supply chain management organization for Yum! Brands Inc. and its national restaurant systems.
Through the Dallas hub, CDC also will improve its service offerings to its growing list of manufacturing customers, including Gold Standard Food Solutions LLC, which works with growers, importers and distributors to bring food products from the field to businesses.
In addition to the new Dallas hub, CDC operates a 260,000-square-foot redistribution center facility in Chicago and a 100,000-square-foot space in metro Atlanta. With its network of redistribution centers, CDC serves more than 170 distributors delivering to more than 60,000 franchisee/store locations across the U.S. and abroad.
