Ontario-based Gold Star Foods Inc. has opened its new 188,000-square-foot distribution center in Dixon, anticipating about 90 new jobs.
The company said the facility at 1000 Vaughn Road will be the primary hub to provide Northern and Central California schools with food – both perishable and dry goods. Gold Star’s regional customers include Twin Rivers, Washington, Vacaville, Travis, Dixon, Fairfield-Suisun and Vallejo City unified school districts.
“As the leading food service provider to K-12 schools in California, our new facility will allow Gold Star to keep foods as close to the source as possible – building on our commitment to provide students with wholesome, fresh and nutritious foods,” Gold Star CEO Sean Leer said in a statement.
Gold Star said it continues to fill positions for its warehouse and transportation departments. Job openings can be seen here, or job seekers can pick up a printed application at the Dixon site.
Founded in 1978, Gold Star bills itself as the nation’s leading nutritional food distributor to K-12 schools. It has operations in California, Nevada and Arizona, supplying some 500 school districts and serving about 3.3 million meals per day during peak periods.
