Twenty-year-old national food distribution company to bring approximately 100
jobs to the community within five years.
PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (March 29, 2017)—The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) today announced that Accent Food Services, a rapidly expanding national break room snack-service provider with more than 300 employees company-wide, is expanding and relocating its Central Texas regional headquarters to Pflugerville. The company will invest approximately $4 million to build a new, 55,000-square-foot office, warehouse and distribution center located at 2919 AW Grimes Blvd.
“Accent Food Services is a well-established, rapidly growing, national break room food services distributor that needed more space, and we are glad we could provide that opportunity and keep them here in Central Texas,” PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said. “This is the fifth regional headquarters in the past two years that has chosen Pflugerville as the place where they want to expand and grow.”
The PCDC Board of Directors approved an economic development agreement with Accent Food Services at a March 16 meeting, and the Pflugerville City Council provided final approval March 28. The incentive package requires Accent Food Services to relocate 85 full-time employees by Dec. 31 and provide health care benefits in addition to an average annual salary of $55,000. The company must also add five full-time employees per year starting Jan. 1, 2018, through 2020. If requirements are met, PCDC will provide a $30,000 per year grant for five years, not to exceed $150,000 total.
