Harris Teeter investing $95M in Richmond food distribution facility

RICHMOND, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced that Harris Teeter, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co., will invest $95 million to establish a 1.5 million-square-foot food distribution operation in Caroline County, of which the first phase will be at least 650,000 square feet. Virginia successfully competed with North Carolina for the project, which will create 400 new jobs.

McAuliffe said, “It is gratifying that our business attraction efforts will result in a well-known brand like Harris Teeter establishing its first Virginia distribution operation in Caroline County. This project is a significant win that represents major investment and the creation of hundreds of jobs. Today’s announcement is a great step forward in our efforts to diversify and build a new Virginia economy.”
