LAS VEGAS (August 30, 2013)—Nicholas and Company, one of the 20 largest broadline distributors in the country, celebrated the groundbreaking of their second distribution center in Las Vegas this week.
"I am thrilled to see Nicholas and Company choose North Las Vegas for its new food service distribution center," said Mayor of North Las Vegas, John Lee. "They will be providing 95 jobs for our families, and I look forward to working with them to become a larger part of our community.”
Nicholas and Company, founded in 1939, is a family-owned and operated broadline distributor in the Intermountain West, with one distribution center based out of Salt Lake City, serving Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, south-west of Montana, eastern Oregon and northern Arizona.
Peter Mouskondis shared: “Growing up, it was great to see Las Vegas evolve. Traveling to Las Vegas was something that we always loved as a family and thought that it would be a thriving community for us to serve and continue to grow as a company. It was always in our plans to someday come into the Las Vegas market and possibly build.”
The distribution center is expected to be finished by May 2014 and operational soon after.
