On August 10, 2022, Biscuitville had a ribbon cutting for the new 78,000 square-foot distribution center in Burlington. Prior to the central facility, the company had been operating out of a leased 20,000 square-foot facility in Graham, as well as rented facilities in Kernersville, Burlington, and Danville, Virginia. Now, with the consolidated facility, all its self-distribution operations will be able to service the 69 restaurants throughout North Carolina and Virginia.
The investment in the new facility is estimated between $8 million and $12 million. Within the distribution center are state-of-the-art features, including new safety equipment, nine loading docks with a truck restraint system, and energy efficient charging stations for the machines inside. The new facility has a 501% increase in pallet locations compared to the prior Biscuitville distribution facilities, and houses the 7.2 million pounds of supplies the company ships annually. Within the facility are 1,356 spaces total for room-temperature, cooler, and freezer locations for products such as flour, fries, chicken filets, bacon, and more. The distribution center will employ 30 people, not including the maintenance workers located in the building.
Even with all these new additions, the facility was designed with the idea of future expansion. Biscuitville plans to open 14 new restaurant locations within the next year, targeting areas in South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia. With this in mind, the layout of the building’s interior includes adjustable racking to allow for additional products and supplies to be stored in the distribution center.
