Capitol Distributing, which provides convenience goods and services to 700 retailers in six states, including 235 Jacksons Food Stores, broke ground on May 1 for its new 220,850-square-foot distribution center slated to be complete in Spring 2019, according to a company press release.
The company currently employs 130 employees at its distribution facility in Meridian on a site that can no longer accommodate the company’s growth. The company’s entire operations and its employees will be transferred to the new distribution center.
Capitol Distributing sources, inventories, and delivers a broad range of 8,000 products to convenience store retailers, said the press release. The company also provides services to its customers, including merchandising, laundry, and technology solutions.
