To accommodate the growth and expansion of the company, H-E-B has called up Temple Warehouse for the latter’s space according to a Storebrands article from June 29 which reports,
“Texas-based grocer H-E-B is expanding its distribution facility in Temple, Tex. to include a new automated frozen distribution line.
Pending a final agreement, the expansion will add over 100 jobs and expand the facility by 325,000 square-feet. The project is expected to be completed in 2024. The Temple distribution center supports over 100 H-E-B stores, providing them with H-E-B’s private brand products.
H-E-B topped a recent dunnhumby e-commerce report that found the chain’s e-commerce business to be the most desirable according to consumers, topping Amazon and Amazon Fresh.”

This expansion project, paired with Temple’s strategic location and immediate access to I-35, will work to strengthen H-E-B’s operations in Texas.”
