United Natural Foods Inc. (UNFI), headquartered in Providence, RI, is planning an expansion in Rhode Island, with the intent of hiring 100 new full-time employees by the end of 2018 for a shared services center. The organic and specialty food distributor also plans a total of 150 new full-time employees by 2020.
The company’s corporate headquarters are at 313 Iron Horse Way, with 34 distribution centers throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company is currently working toward a long-term lease at an undefined site, and will apply for tax credits under the Qualified Jobs Incentive Act program.
“We look forward to expanding our presence in Rhode Island with the opening of our shared services center, which will enable us to drive greater efficiencies and improve the customer experience as we further simplify and standardize our supplier and customer interactions,” said Steven L. Spinner, UNFI president, CEO and Chairman of the Board.
