Gordon Food Service – Ocala, FL

Gordon Food Service was looking to break into a new business model to continue their growth in the foodservice industry. They needed a cost-effective distribution facility which was highly flexible, in a great location, able to expand quickly when the need arises, and they needed a fast-track construction team to get it up and running as quickly as possible.

GFS and Tippmann Group already had an existing relationship, based on a successful prior construction project in Brighton, Michigan, so they knew Tippmann could meet all of their needs on the project.

The facility was designed to hold multiple temperatures in order to accommodate Gordon’s frozen, refrigerated, and dry products, and was designed with the ability to expand any of those three areas as the business grows.

The project was completed in six months, and was being built simultaneously with another GFS facility in Greenville, South Carolina, also designed and built by Tippmann Group.

Facility Highlights:

  • 115,000 square foot distribution center
  • Flexible temperatures and rooms to accommodate frozen, refrigerated and dry products
  • Master site planning in place for expansion when the need arises
