Construction Underway for DeKalb’s Kraft Heinz Distribution Center

Cheese, ketchup and mustard will soon be delivered out of DeKalb as Kraft Heinz plans to build one of its largest distribution centers in the city. The facility costs over $400 million and will be 775,000 square feet.

The Kraft Heinz facility adds to the existing Amazon facility and Meta Data Center in the area.

The Kraft Heinz Company says in a statement: “DeKalb was chosen as the site for Kraft Heinz’s newest distribution center due to its prime location off a major roadway, direct access to the national railway system with Union Pacific, the strong local labor market, and the property tax abatement and incentive package in partnership with the DeKalb County Economic Development Corporation.”

Construction on the Kraft Heinz facility will be complete in 2025.

Leaders say the facility will be one of the largest in North America, distributing more than 60% of Kraft Heinz products throughout the country.
