Sprouts Farmers Market Plans Twenty New Stores in 2021


To support the projected rate of establishing new stores, Sprouts Farmers Market has established their sixth distribution center in Aurora, CO. with a seventh planned for Florida mid-year.  The Colorado DC. will serve 45 stores in Colorado, five in Utah, and eight in New Mexico.


Chief Fresh Merchandising Officer, Scott Neal, stated “As we grow our footprint we will strategically place new stores and distribution centers closer together to maximize our own fresh product network.”  He added, “The location of our Aurora facility, combined with features such as ripening rooms for bananas and avocados, will immediately provide our stores with an expanded selection of affordable organics.” 


Joe Hurley, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, stated “With a distribution center in Colorado, our truck routes are shorter and reduce crossings of state borders enabling us to partner with our local and regional farmers with more synergy.”
