Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) today announced that H-E-B, the San Antonio-based supermarket chain, will be expanding their Temple, Texas distribution facilities with a new automated frozen distribution line. Pending final negotiations with Temple EDC and the City of Temple the project will grow H-E-B’s current facility footprint by 325,000 sq. ft. and will add over 100 jobs to the local economy.
H-E-B’s Temple Distribution warehouse supports over 100 H-E-B retail stores across the region, from Austin to Dallas, and has been operating in the Temple community since 2010. With over 117 years in business, H-E-B is one of the nation’s largest independently owned food retailers and sees $36 billion in annual sales. The company is in the permit stage of the expansion with construction slated to begin by the end of 2022, and project completion expected in 2024.
