LEMONT, Ill.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Consolidated Distribution Corporation, LLC (CDC), the leading
QSR, fast casual and casual dining supply chain solutions company in the U.S., has opened a new redistribution
center to meet increased customer demand and to better service the southeast market.
Located in metro Atlanta, Ga., the new 100,000-square-foot facility space will specialize in the redistribution of dry
goods, including foodservice, janitorial, sanitation and safety items for CDC customers. With redistribution,
manufacturers ship truckload quantities of slower moving, promotional or seasonal items to CDC, which in turn ships
consolidated full truckloads of products to foodservice distributors, resulting in cost savings and increased
efficiencies throughout the supply chain.
One CDC customer benefiting right away from the new distribution hub will be Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-
op®, LLC. (UFPC), the exclusive supply chain management organization for Yum! Brands, Inc. and its five national
restaurant systems: A&W, KFC, Long John Silver’s, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Wing Street.
“CDC’s redistribution model allows us to reduce costs and optimize the supply chain to more than 22,000
restaurants across the country,” says Pat Brown, director of transportation of UFPC. “We expect to see an
additional positive financial impact resulting in significant savings within our redistribution network over the next year
with the new Atlanta facility.”
CDC also operates a 260,000-square-foot redistribution center facility in Chicago, serving more than 150
distributors delivering to more than 60,000 restaurant store locations across the U.S. and abroad.
“Opening the southeast location will increase the company’s capacity by up to 38 percent and meet the growing
