ATLANTA (July 2, 2011)—Buckhead Beef, a business unit of Sysco Corp. and a supplier of meat-based proteins to the food service market, plans to build a new beef processing facility in College Park, Ga., that will open in the spring of 2012.
The new facility, to be built on land already owned by the company, will replace Buckhead Beef’s current facility in Atlanta and feature 67,000 square feet of production space, as well as serve as the company’s headquarters. It will also have a culinary center, which the company will use to work with customers on product development projects.
“This new facility will be much larger than our present one and incorporate the most advanced technology, allowing us to be more efficient and increase production,” said Chad Stine, president of Buckhead Beef. “We will be able to better service our clients, continuing to provide them with our full product line, including Certified Angus Beef, veal, poultry, fresh seafood, wild game, lamb, pork and specialty prepared foods.”
