Ben E. Keith Co., Fort Worth, Texas, purchased 89 acres in Selma, Texas, to build a new distribution center.  

The new distribution center will be located in northwest Selma at the intersection of Schertz Parkway and Lookout Road, with construction to begin immediately. The 510,000-square-foot LEED-certified facility is to be completed by the fall of 2018, and will include such features as an automatic slotting and retrieval system, a modern test kitchen and training center.  

“We have enjoyed our growth in the San Antonio, Austin, Hill Country and South Texas markets for over 25 years. A new state-of-the-art facility will continue our mission to be a better partner for our customers, and to provide our employees with an exceptional work environment,” says Mike Sweet, president.
