Cold Storage Distribution Expansion


Gourmet Foods International is a specialty cheese and gourmet food distribution company providing cold storage to retailers and food service companies across the U.S. Their Kenosha, WI location was experiencing capacity issues and engaged Performa to perform a fit study to determine expansion needs as well as ways to maximize cold storage and distribution space. A 76,000 square foot expansion was the result, which included the following components:
• 14,000 sf freezer
• 50,000 sf cooler
• 15,000 sf dry storage space
• 6 additional process lines
• New shipping and receiving office
• 15 additional docks
• Expand pallet capacity by 200%

The project team worked diligently with local authorities to maximize the site to its fullest capacity while mitigating impact to surrounding wetlands.
