Whole Foods Distribution Center

On January 8, 2018, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, Alderman Anthony Beale and Whole Foods joined the historic Pullman community to celebrate the opening of a new Midwest distribution center.

The new 140,000 square foot Whole Foods Market distribution center will take advantage of the Pullman neighborhood’s skilled workforce, close proximity to the interstate and diverse business climate to serve Whole Foods Market locations across the Midwest, including 25 currently in the Chicago area and new stores in the Chicago neighborhoods of Hyde Park and Englewood and the suburb of Evergreen Park.

The new distribution center which relocated to Pullman from Indiana brings 100 jobs to Chicago and serves as many as 70 Whole Foods Market grocery stores in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa, and the Canadian province of Ontario.
