EDGE funds to assist with the expansion of a cooler/freezer distribution center in Bibb County to support the relocation and expansion of the MBM Corporations existing Macon facility. MBM is one of the largest privately owned food service distributors in the nation. The Company specializes in food and other related products to national restaurant chains like Arby’s, Burger King, Captain D’s, Chick-fil-A, Red Lobster and Olive Garden to name a few. MBM, founded in 1947 and based in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, operates 32 distribution centers throughout the continental United States. The Macon location has outgrown its 43,000 SF and will relocate to a 16-acre site in Macon’s Ocmulgee East Industrial Park.

This project is in competition with Nashville, TN.
