The Maryland location will be the meal solutions company's first location on the East Coast

Home Chef, a meal solutions brand available online and in retail, plans to open its fourth production facility in Baltimore this summer. The new center, 1701 East Patapsco Avenue, will create more than 500 jobs by 2024 and will be Home Chef's first East Coast site to provide meals to the company's growing customer base.

"Our new facility will put us even closer to our customers, allowing us to deliver fresher ingredients and a wider range of meal options to East Coast homes," said Erik Jensen, Home Chef's CEO. "Maryland is a great place for our first home in this part of the country, and we look forward to making a positive impact in the Baltimore community."

The new Baltimore facility will be Home Chef's largest by volume, accounting for more than 30% of Home Chef's meal solutions delivered nationwide. The production and distribution center was designed specifically to meet Home Chef's high food safety standards and will provide increased efficiencies for docking, storage, and facility flow.

Home Chef's new 170,000-square-foot space will accommodate the brand's online meal delivery service, which rotates more than 30 meal options weekly.

The company offers approachable, tasty recipes in many formats – from Classic Meal Kits to minimal-mess Oven-Ready and Fast & Fresh meals, family-friendly options, and Culinary Collection recipes for more adventurous home cooks – plus add-ons like protein packs, beverages, salads, desserts, and more.
