McShane Completes Home Chef’s Southeast Facility

The interior build-out of Home Chef’s new Southeastern Distribution Center in Douglasville, Georgia, has been completed. McShane Construction Company was selected by Home Chef to provide design-build services for the project. The 181,477-square-foot facility is used to process, store, and distribute Home Chef’s pre-portioned meal kits.

The first phase of the project involved building out 19,772 square feet of freezer space, 18,520 square feet of cooler space, office space, cold docks with 20 dock positions and two drive-in doors, cold production space, and a shipping area.

In the second phase of construction, McShane added a 10,000-square-foot ready-to-heat commercial kitchen within the cooler space.

Ready-to-Heat Kitchen

Same Team Approach
McShane is also working on three concurrent ready-to-heat kitchens for Home Chef in Illinois, Maryland and California. Utilizing the same project team from the Douglasville facility, McShane is able to streamline the construction process to get Home Chef’s operations up and running faster.
