SHARE Golden State Foods shows off new McCook distributor center

Golden State Foods on Monday marked the grand opening of its new distribution center in McCook.

The 158,000-square-foot center will help supply more than 460 McDonald’s restaurants in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana.

The California-based company says the McCook center is its most efficient center and was designed to be 40 percent more energy efficient than comparable buildings. The LEED-certified center was designed to conserve resources and reduce environmental impact. Among the building’s features, rainwater from the roof is collected underground and can take care of all landscape watering for two weeks without additional rain.

Golden State Foods employs about 4,500 people worldwide and supplies more than 125,000 stores on five continents. The company processes liquid products, meat, produce and dairy as well as full-line distribution to the food industry. McDonald’s is among its largest customers.
