New York brokers Dennis Someck and Justin Myers have leased a 375,000 s/f distribution center for meal-kit giant HelloFresh.
The Lee & Associates duo quarterbacked the deal for the Texas facility after representing the company in its New York City headquarters relocation last spring.
“After successfully relocating the HelloFresh U.S. corporate headquarters to 43,000 s/f at 28 Liberty Street from 40 West 25th Street in 2019, we worked closely with the HelloFresh team and our colleagues from the Dallas Lee & Associates office to locate and negotiate a major expansion of the meal kit company’s critical Dallas distribution center,” Someck said.
Located at 2700 Market Street in Irving, Texas, at at DFW Airport, the new facility will be the company’s largest and will enable HelloFresh to bolster its service in the South and Midwest. When it opens next spring, the facility is expected to create as many as 1,200 new jobs.
Someck and Myers, from Lee & Associates NYC, represented HelloFresh along with Trey Fricke and Reid Bassinger, of Lee & Associates Dallas-Fort Worth, in the Texas deal.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our operational footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro region, a highly effective logistics hub as demonstrated by our existing Grand Prairie distribution center,” said Uwe Voss, CEO of HelloFresh U.S.
“This new facility bolsters our already strong presence in the region and further supports HelloFresh U.S. growth plans as we continue to invest in our facilities, our people and our technology to provide superior service and delicious meals to new and existing customers.”
