Rural King has announced it will expand its distribution center operations in Waverly, creating 75 new jobs. The Waverly distribution facility opened in 2015 and currently operates with approximately 370 associates at the location.
For this expansion, Rural King has obtained and will occupy an additional 800,000 square feet of the former Mill’s Pride building adjacent to their current operation.
This project will put three vacant buildings back into productive re-use. Rural King will invest nearly $17 million at the site, which includes significant improvements to the building.
JobsOhio and OhioSE worked collaboratively with Rural King representatives on the project, which will receive a $400,000 JobsOhio Economic Development Grant.
