Texas-based Quality Custom Distribution, a subsidiary of Golden State Foods in California, is expanding its footprint. The company has acquired four Dedicated Logistics Inc. distribution centers, including one in Indianapolis.
The other centers are located in Chicago, Boston, Washington, D.C. as well as a satellite depot in St. Louis. This acquisition brings QCD’s portfolio to 30 locations nationwide.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The company says QCD’s newly-acquired centers will serve an additional 2,100 Starbucks stores across 20 states.
“With excellent customer collaboration and a dedicated team, all of us here at QCD strive to support Starbucks’ growth in the markets where they need us, and our growth is a reflection of their continued success and our longstanding partnership,” said QCD President Ryan Hammer. “As we go forward, we have the privilege of welcoming new associates to our QCD family and maintaining the highest standards with their valued expertise in the Midwest and Northeast markets.”
The new locations employ more than 600 associates, which increases GSF’s total employee count to more than 6,000 globally.
