McLane Foodservice announced recently that it will buy and renovate its Shawnee facility, keeping 186 jobs in the community and adding 25 new positions in the future.
The company will invest more than $17.5 million to purchase and renovate a 244,000-square-foot warehouse at 8200 Monticello Road. McLane is part of the McLane Company, a $34 billion supply chain services company that provides grocery and foodservice supply chain solutions for thousands of convenience stores, mass merchants, drug stores and military locations, as well as thousands of chain restaurants throughout the United States.
“I am pleased that McLane Foodservice has decided to invest and expand in its current location,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “I know the city worked hard to retain the company and keep them as valued member of the community.”
“The city of Shawnee was pleased to partner with the state of Kansas to support McLane Foodservice as they further invest in our city and create new jobs in Kansas,” said Shawnee Mayor Jeff Meyers.
