Food distributor building new facility in North Las Vegas

A Salt Lake City company that had been on the fence over whether to build a new distribution center in North Las Vegas or Phoenix has opted for Nevada.

Nicholas & Co., which distributes food products to eight states from its Salt Lake City facility and has grown to 500 employees over 70 years, will soon begin construction of the new facility.

“This is an exciting time for Nicholas & Co.,” said Peter Mouskondis, president and CEO. “With the completion of the planning phase, we are proud to announce that construction will soon begin on our Las Vegas distribution center. This will provide our customers with improved service and strengthen our position in the marketplace so we can offer the special services we’ve built our family-owned company on.”

In March, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development board unanimously approved a $625,000 grant for its 200,000-square-foot food distribution center.

Funds would be disbursed over five years upon verification of the establishment of 125 jobs.

At the time, Mouskondis said the privately held company was weighing North Las Vegas against Phoenix for the project.

The distribution center will be built near Sloan Lane and Las Vegas Boulevard North.

  1. I would guess that they would like the new Interstate 11 to be built between Phoenix and Las Vegas. Or at minimum the Boulder City Bypass to be built.
