Onions 52 Opens East Coast Facility
November 28, 2023
SYRACUSE, UT - Plans for the East Coast are in the works for Onions 52. Utah-based Onions 52 has announced plans to expand its operations with a distribution and packing facility opening up in Cincinnati, Ohio. The new facility is set to be fully operational beginning in early 2024.
“This is a very exciting milestone for Onions 52, and we have been waiting for the opportunity to expand east for a long time. The location and timing are ideal, and this is an investment for our customers and growers,” Shawn Hartley, President, commented. “We value our quality, consistency, and service to our retail and foodservice partners, and the new facility will allow for tremendous opportunities to help support our East Coast customers.”
With existing FOB shipping locations in Utah, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Texas, and New Mexico, the expansion will better serve East Coast retailers and foodservice partners, noted the release.
Onions 52 is a vertically integrated onion supplier that grows, packs, and ships all varieties of onions 52 weeks a year—ensuring there is never a week without onions. While some companies focus on many different commodities, Onions 52 focuses on one thing: onions. “The expansion will increase production capacity through additional space and process improvements by adding an additional 60,000 square feet of consumer packing machines and sorting lines,” Trevor Flint, Chief Financial Officer, said. “As the demand for same-day and next-day order fulfillment increases, this new facility will make operations more efficient and help supply our top-quality onions coast to coast.”
