G&C Foods and ARCOLD, a division of ARCO Design/Build, recently celebrated a significant milestone: the groundbreaking for G&C’s new build-to-suit food distribution facility in Alachua, FL. With bright and shiny shovels in hand, they marked a momentous occasion joined by key stakeholders, including G&C team members, family and friends, the Mayor of Alachua, and representatives from the local Chamber of Commerce.

Spanning over 250,000 SF, ARCOLD’s cutting-edge facility, designed by ARCOLD’s integrated partners, is a model of efficiency and durability. Situated on 70 acres, with room for future expansion up to 270,000 SF, this facility will feature 82,000 SF of -10° freezer space and 100,000 SF of 34° refrigerated space, totaling approximately 22,000 pallet positions. It will also include 24 dock positions and a 16,000 SF Truck Maintenance Facility.

With nearly five decades of commitment to excellence in the food service and redistribution industry, G&C has grown to be one of the most respected redistributors in the eastern United States, serving 28 states and exporting to Latin America. This cutting-edge facility is a testament to their dedication to quality and innovation, designed to store an extensive inventory of frozen, refrigerated, and dry goods.

From concept to completion, ARCOLD is honored to have been selected as G&C Food’s design-build partner for this milestone project. Utilizing our architectural, structural and concrete integrated partners, we are excited to deliver a quality project to enhance G&C’s operations. This will enable them to further expand their distribution network and increase flexibility and adaptability, empowering G&C to swiftly respond to changes in demand or supply disruptions.
