Reinhart Foodservice recently announced that it is investing over $30 million to expand into Mt. Pleasant.

The company plans to build a 155,000 square foot addition to its current 169,000 square foot facility. The project will create 24 positions.

The expansion will include the purchase of machinery and equipment and the addition of cold storage.

The Department of Community and Economic Development submitted a funding proposal for a Pennsylvania First grant of $72,000 for the project.

“Reinhart Foodservice provides essential goods to the region, and the Commonwealth is pleased to invest in expanding its operations,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “This project will create and retain jobs in two counties and provide new opportunities for workers in nearby communities while ensuring the company has the space and equipment necessary to continue serving customers throughout Pennsylvania and beyond.”

The Governor’s Action Team coordinated the project.

Reinhart Foodservice is part of the Performance Foodservice division of PFG.

“Reinhart is an important part of PFG’s Performance Foodservice division, and we are excited to expand our business in western Pennsylvania,” said Craig Hoskins, president and COO of PFG. “We have many valuable customers and great opportunities in the region, and we look forward to adding to the incredible talent we already have to serve them.

In addition to the Westmoreland County location, Reinhart Foodservice has a Northumberland County facility.
