It was recently reported that Blue Apron is planning to expand its operations to Linden, New Jersey.
Blue Apron is a leading fresh-meal kit delivery company based in New York City.
The company expects to employ over 2,000 people in the new Linden facility upon construction of a new 495,000-square-foot fulfillment center by the end of 2017.
One of the reasons for Blue Apron’s expansion is to meet strong customer demand and to help improve operational logistics and efficiencies.
Currently, Blue Apron operates fulfillment centers in Jersey City; Arlington, Texas; and Richmond, California. The company is also planning to roll out an additional fulfillment center in Fairfield, California, in 2018.
The decision to build out a Linden facility was the result of efforts in part by Choose New Jersey, the privately-funded business attraction and retention arm of New Jersey. Blue Apron’s decision was based upon Linden’s proximity to more than 22 million consumers. Nearly 40% of the U.S. population also can be reached within two days from New Jersey via its transportation and rail infrastructure.
