Construction Continues on Coca-Cola Distribution Center in Tampa, Florida

Coca-Cola Beverages Florida LLC is continuing construction on a new distribution center in Tampa. The 800,000-square-foot complex will rest on a 156-acre lot. BusinessWire reports that the facility will serve as a campus for the hundreds of employees residing in the area.

The state-of-the-art complex intends to use a streamlined system to quickly and efficiently distribute Coca-Cola products to its target locations. The groundbreaking ceremony officially took place in June 2022.

The build site measures more than 150 acres.

Haskell Company/Jacksonville, the general contractor, hopes to finish the project within 36 months. The organization is also serving as the architect and civil engineer. Upon opening, the center will bring “significant economic activity” to Tampa and the surrounding cities.

Coke Florida chose Tampa for the new facility because it’s headquartered there. Right now, the company has four manufacturing facilities throughout the state, employing more than 4,600 people.

The venture could cost more than $250 million to complete. Coke Florida hopes to build other facilities in the state. Founded seven years ago, it’s one of the largest Black-owned businesses in the state, per the Shelby Report.

Troy Taylor, the CEO of Coke Florida, told BusinessObserver that even though the new facility measures 800,000 square feet, it’ll only take up 25 percent of the build site. The remaining space will host Coke Florida’s future ventures.

Sources list the Coca-Cola plant’s address as 9010 Causeway Boulevard, Tampa, Florida, 33619, in Hillsborough County.
