LUBBOCK - The United Family of grocery stores announced the expansion of its distribution center and plans for the addition of 190 new jobs in Lubbock over the next few years.

Robert Taylor, United president, announced the company is adding 200,000 sf to its Lubbock distribution site — a $33.7 million capital investment.

The new jobs United will create include back office and IT support, warehouse and transportation staff. The salaries for those jobs will be $7.2 million per year.

“It is important to recognize that by keeping and expanding the support functions for United here in Lubbock, the economic development that comes from company growth all originates right from our city,” Taylor said. “This is a significant increase to the 872 support jobs at an annualized payroll of almost $35 million currently in place.”
