GSF is a diversified supplier to the quick-service restaurant and retail industries, servicing more than 125,000 restaurants and stores on five continents from its 50 locations. The $70 million-plus project, which will involve new construction and state-of-the-art design and build-out of a 200,000-square-foot facility, is expected to create 150 new jobs.

“We are thrilled to be able to soon call Burleson home,” says John Maguire, corporate vice president and president, liquid products North America. “There were many options in the Southwest, but Burleson was the best choice for us. The Burleson team were such great partners with their professionalism, compelling economic incentive package, investments in the local workforce and overall commitment to the community that they rapidly became our preferred choice. We’re looking forward to becoming an active part of this fine community.”
