The digital convenience retailer, goPuff, has set sights on opening a distribution center in Gloucester County, N.J. The company’s new 299,750-square-foot facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2019.
GoPuff delivers thousands of products from groceries to household goods in over 50 U.S. markets.
This expansion will create more than 600 new jobs in the next three years.
“Providing meaningful growth opportunities to businesses with new ideas is a principal component of my Economic Plan and rebuilding the innovation economy in New Jersey,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “I am confident that goPuff will benefit from New Jersey’s world-class location and workforce, and I congratulate them on their expansion here.”
This facility will be in addition to the New Brunswick and Cherry Hill, N.J. distribution centers.
“As we continue to fuel the expansion of our brand, the addition of our new distribution center is important to our continued growth and success,” said Rafael Ilishayev, goPuff co-founder.
Last month, goPuff announced a $4 million Philadelphia expansion project investment. The company’s new Philadelphia headquarters will provide over 150 full-time jobs. This is in addition to their 10 new warehouses across Pennsylvania in Allegheny, Chester, Dauphin, Lackawanna, and Philadelphia counties, which are expected to generate over 500 jobs within the next three years.
