Home Chef, the meal kit company owned by Kroger, is moving to a larger production facility in San Bernardino, Calif.
With the expansion, the company will nearly triple the size of its operations, according to a news release. The new “state-of-the-art” space will accommodate both the direct-to-consumer and retail branches of the business.
“We are proud to call the city of San Bernardino our West Coast home,” Alice Thompson, Home Chef’s chief operating officer, said in the release. “We look forward to creating more jobs and continuing to make a positive impact on the local community. We have an incredible team recruited from the San Bernardino area. Maintaining that team was top of mind as we determined where to expand our West Coast presence.”
Home Chef offers a variety of meal kit options, including a Heat & Eat line and an Oven-Ready line.
“Our secret sauce has always been our customer-first approach,” Pat Vihtelic, Home Chef’s founder and CEO, said in the release. “Everything about our experience is designed with the customer at the center. By keeping our West Coast facility in San Bernardino, we will be able to continue to provide the best possible cooking experience.”
