Golden State Foods (GSF) subsidiary Quality Custom Distribution (QCD) has opened a distribution facility in West Valley City, Salt Lake County, Utah, US.

The new facility is one of the 19 centres in the country QCD will use to offer distribution services to quick service restaurant (QSR) chains such as Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and Chipotle.

The new distribution centre will serve Salt Lake City, Richfield and Logan areas in Utah, as well as certain parts of Nevada, Wyoming, and Idaho.

The facility uses a warehouse management system (WMS) for all inbound and outbound freight orders, including a voice-guided selection, as well as a new programme to assist warehouse associates in becoming Class A drivers.

Quality Custom Distribution corporate vice-president and quality custom distribution president Ryan Hammer said: “The Salt Lake City distribution centre is QCD’s sixth new DC to open in the past three years and reflects the company’s commitment to providing excellent last mile service to our customers in key areas of the country.

“To see this location grow from a small depot facility to a state-of-the-art foodservice distribution centre that provides the dispatching of routes to our valued customers seven days a week within a much tighter service radius is a great milestone for this team and our customers that we service.”
