It’s true that “man doesn’t live by bread alone.” On the other hand, people the world over definitely eat a lot of bread. That’s a big reason why Lacy Construction recently built a brand new, 10,500-square-foot distribution center for Bimbo Bakeries USA. Located in Grand Island, Nebraska, the facility’s construction began last March and was completed in November.
This $1.3 million project for Bimbo Bakeries will allow the company, which operates more than 50 bakeries, employs more than 19,000 associates, and distributes products through 11,000 sales routes throughout the U.S., to expand its presence in Nebraska and the surrounding areas.
