Gordon Food Service to build stores in southeastern Wisconsin

Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Gordon Food Service, which built a 500,000-square-foot regional distribution center last year in Kenosha, plans to build several Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores in southeastern Wisconsin.
Bill Casey, a real estate manger for the company, confirmed the company’s plans to open stores in the Milwaukee area, but declined to provide any details.
However the company has already disclosed plans to build stores on Miller Park Way in West Milwaukee and in Pleasant Prairie.
Plans for the West Milwaukee store have been approved, but the company has yet to begin construction, a village official said.
The 11,346-square-foot Pleasant Prairie store will be built on a 3-acre site near the southwest corner of Highway 50 and Highway 31.
Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores are targeted to restaurants, caters, other businesses or individuals planning special events, that need to purchase a large amount of quality food, said Jean Werbie-Harris, community development director for Pleasant Prairie. The store is similar to a Sam’s Club but is much smaller and does not require customers to become members, she said.
Gordon food service has 134 stores in the U.S.
