The Balistreri-owned Sendik’s Food Markets will move its corporate office and warehouse operations to a 208,000-square-foot building at 7225 W. Marcia Road in Milwaukee.
The building, located on the city’s far northwest side, has 173,000 square feet of warehouse space and 35,000 sauare feet office space. Sendik’s will lease the building from Mequon-based Devo Properties.
Sendik’s will move about 40-45 employees from its current corporate office next to its Whitefish Bay store at Lake Drive and Silver Spring Drive, and about 10 employees from its warehouse operations at its Greenfield store at South 79th Street and Layton Avenue, to the Milwaukee building.
“We want to be in Milwaukee for a long time,” said Sendik’s spokesman Nick Bandoch. “We’re a growing company. We need more space for our office and for our warehouse. We will be able to consolidate and plan for future growth.”
The company currently has 10 stores in the Milwaukee area and will add an 11th this summer in Bayside, which it is taking over from a different Sendik’s group. The company is looking for places to open additional stores, Bandoch said.
“We are always looking for a community where we think Sendik’s would be a good fit,” he said.
