Hy-Vee Finds Fulfillment in KC

by Addie Linn | Jul 06, 2017

Congratulations to our partners in Kansas City, Missouri, on the announcement that Hy-Vee, Inc. will open an e-commerce distribution center and central kitchen to serve its KC area stores.

The company will build a 137,000-sq.-ft. facility to house both a central kitchen and fulfillment center for online ordering. The development is expected to employ 127 people initially, eventually increasing to more than 200 jobs for the area. The density of stores in the area, central location and new developments were all factors in Hy-Vee’s final decision on the KC region. The fulfillment center will bolster Hy-Vee Aisle Online, a service in which customers can shop for groceries, pay online and choose pick up or delivery options for their orders. Additionally, the central kitchen will create and supply area stores with prepared meals. The facility will be located at 87th Street and Elmwood Avenue in the Three Trails Industrial Park in south Kansas City. Hy-Vee will occupy space in Building III, one of several built by NorthPoint Development.

KCADC was proud to partner with the following organizations in attracting Hy-Vee to the KC region:

  • Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri
  • City of Kansas City, Missouri
  • PortKC
  • Missouri Partnership
  • Jackson County, Missouri
  • KCP&L
  • MGE/Spire Energy
  • Metropolitan Community College
  • The R. H. Johnson Company
