US Foods begins construction of new Chef’Store in Charleston

A huge player in the food distribution business is moving ahead with its fifth U.S. site — in restaurant-rich Charleston.

Illinois-based US Foods Inc. is breaking ground this month for a new 59,000-square-foot Chef’Store on 9 acres at 1510 Meeting St. Road on the upper peninsula.


The food distributor bought the site in August for $7.9 million from American Shipping and Logistics Group of New Jersey, according to Charleston County property records.

Ladson-based Frampton Construction is expected to complete the project in June 2018. It previously built sites for US Foods in Arizona and Oklahoma.

Chef’Store offers wholesale food, equipment and supplies to the restaurant industry. Its other stores are in Charlotte and Columbia.

US Foods also maintains distribution centers in more than 60 locations in 37 states, including sites in Fort Mill near Charlotte and Lexington near Columbia.

The wholesale, cash-and-carry food and restaurant supply outlet stocks pantry staples, commercial kitchen equipment and items such as serving trays and skillets. Its product lineup spans more than 350,000 brands.

Chef’Store focuses on serving chefs, restaurant owners, operators of institutional kitchens such as churches or schools, and the general public.

The site sits between Algonquin Road and a self-storage facility.

On the way

A new townhome development is coming to North Charleston.

Mount Pleasant-based builder Hunter Quinn Homes plans to construct 94 townhomes near an Ashley River marsh off Dorchester Road.

The new community will be called Tributary at The Park at River’s Edge, named for the gated subdivision near Bosch‘s auto parts plant and Charleston Air Force Base.

Home prices will start in the high $100,000s and feature four floor plans named for tributaries of the Ashley River.

Mountain bound

Mount Pleasant-based Ziff Properties recently bought the 85,401-square-foot Biltmore Station in Asheville, N.C., for an undisclosed sum from an affiliate of Charlotte’s Aston Properties

The mixed-use purchase represents the firm’s first foray into the Asheville area, according to Christian Chamblee, chief operating officer and director of acquisitions.

“The property’s submarket is dynamic and poised for long-term viability,” he said.
