Online restaurant supply company WebstaurantStore LLC, based in Lancaster, Pa., will open a new distribution facility in Lebanon, Tenn.

The facility will create 225 new jobs in Wilson County and use automated packaging machines to target increased demand for restaurant, industrial and other office supplies and equipment, according to a February 28 post by Clark Associates.

This expansion allows WebstaurantStore to ship to customers primarily in the Midwest, with the capability of shipping orders throughout the entire U.S. and internationally.

“We are excited to continue the expansion of our distribution network with our newest facility in the state of Tennessee. Our facility, located in Lebanon, will be our largest investment in automation and infrastructure in the company’s history,” says Caleb Clugston, vice president of network optimization at WebstaurantStore, in the post. “The labor pool and skilled logistics workforce of the greater Lebanon, Tennessee, area made our decision easy when selecting our next site for distribution. We look forward to continued growth and positively impacting the community, as well as the state of Tennessee, for many years to come.”

The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development says in a press release that WebstaurantStore will invest nearly $104 million in the Tennessee facility.
