September 22, 2014 – Local officials joined Nicholas and Company representatives on Monday to cut the ribbon of a state-of-the-art food service distribution center in North Las Vegas at the new facility off of I-15 on 5670 Linn Lane.
The 183,000 square-foot North Las Vegas warehouse can hold up to 600,000 cases of food-service products for distribution to restaurants, hospitals, schools and other commercial customers along with an on-site exposition kitchen. The building is designed to expand over 400,000 square-feet as the company grows.
“We are excited to see our lifelong dream to build in Las Vegas come to fruition. I want to thank Governor Sandoval, Mayor Lee of North Las Vegas and their respective economic development teams for their assistance with our permitting and financial incentive package needs, which expedited our ability to reach this momentous day” said Peter Mouskondis, CEO and President of Nicholas and Company.
Nicholas and Company is now the largest independent broad-line food-service distributor in the Intermountain West. They are based in Salt Lake City and serve Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, southwest Montana, eastern Oregon and northern Arizona.
