Dot Foods opens new distribution center


Journal-Courier staff



MOUNT STERLING — Dot Foods opened its 10th distribution center on Thursday, a 191,000-square-foot facility in University Park.

Volume growth in the Midwest drove the Mount Sterling-based company’s need for more warehouse capacity in the region, according to officials. Dot bought the property in late 2015 and transferred its existing cross-dock operation in Joliet into the new facility. The building included dry, frozen and cooler warehouse space. Over the past year, Dot added a gate station, garage, fuel station and scale to accommodate its trucking operations and make the facility a full-distribution center.

Work on the building will continue into 2018, with the addition enhanced break room facilities for employees.

“We are always excited to celebrate growth,” said Dick Tracy, Dot Foods president. “Our 10th distribution center is a major milestone for the business.”

Dot employs more than 150 people at its Chicago facility. More than 100 were hired within the last year, with the remainder being employees who transferred from the company’s former Joliet operation. Dot Foods Chicago is now hiring both drivers and warehouse order selectors with a goal of employing 350 people from University Park and the surrounding area by 2020.
