Aurora, CO—KeHE Distributors is expanding to include a larger distribution center in Aurora, CO. The expansion comes as the company has established a distribution list of more than 30,000 outlets across North America.

“KeHE is thrilled to announce this expansion, especially in such a key location,” said Chris Graas, Vice President of Sales for KeHE. “Our goal is to continue to provide exceptional and expanded service to the region. Because Colorado is a hub for product innovation and sustainability within the food and beverage industry, KeHE is committed to having a meaningful impact and presence in this community. By establishing a destination for innovation and creating a place to experience KeHE Goodness, we look forward to expanding our reach and operations in Boulder to better serve our partners.

The upgrades will provide KeHE with an additional 124,000 square feet across all temperature zones. This includes 33% more freezer space, 66% more capacity in the cooler and 43% more in the dry space.

Additionally, KeHE will add new employment opportunities in the Aurora and Boulder areas. These jobs will include selector, forklift operator and receiver positions. The hope is that these new jobs will bring economic growth to the Colorado region.
