US Foods, Rosemont, Ill., announced plans to nearly double its footprint in Manassas, Va., and create approximately 100 new jobs over the next 5 years.

Considered a strategic location for US Foods in the Mid-Atlantic region, the project includes a 220,000-square-foot expansion and renovation that increases the total useable floor space to more than 466,000 square feet. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

“As a leading food distributor in Virginia, we are excited to be adding to our local workforce,” says Jim Sturgell, area president for Metro DC. “Not only does this expansion allow us to create more jobs, [but] it [also] allows us to strengthen our presence and leadership in this market and continue to provide exceptional service to our growing Virginia customer base.”
