The food distribution center is the prototype for Target and will enable frozen, refrigerated and fresh produce items to reach customers in the Southeast. The 76-acre site is Target’s first company-owned perishable food distribution center. Target plans to open additional food distribution centers over the next several years in specific markets as part of its overall distribution network of wholesalers, direct-to-store, and regional distribution centers.
