Chick-fil-A will build a major distribution center in Alamance County.
The company will invest an estimated $52 million to build the new facility in Mebane.
The project, part of Chick-fil-A Supply, the company’s new distribution service focused on supplying food and products to its restaurants, will create 160 jobs at the North Carolina Industrial Center.
Chick-fil-A Supply’s project in North Carolina will be facilitated, in part, by a Job Development Investment Grant approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee. Over the course of the 12-year term of this grant, the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by nearly $389 million. Using a formula that takes into account the new tax revenues generated by the new jobs, the JDIG agreement authorizes the potential reimbursement to the company of up to $1,562,400, spread over 12 years.
The new center is scheduled to open in early 2022.
