Hundreds of New, Full-Time Jobs Coming To Columbia County

Governor Wolf says an online restaurant supply company, WebstaurantStore.com, will build and operate a 586,000 square foot distribution center in Buckhorn and the project will bring at least 400 new, full-time jobs to our area. The $33-million dollar distribution center project in Hemlock Township, Columbia County near Home Depot will help the company better serve the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. The Wolf Administration is providing an $800,000 grant and an $800,000 tax credit to the company for expanding and investing in Pennsylvania. The governor’s office says WebstaurantStore.com is the largest online restaurant supply store serving food service professionals and individual customers worldwide. The company, which was launched in 2004 and is headquartered in Lancaster County, has expanded its offerings over the years beyond the restaurant industry, to include healthcare, educational, and hotel supplies.
