Yum! Headquarters for International Gourmet Foods distributor locating in Woodbridge

Prince William Board of County Supervisors announce via press release on July 22 that International Gourmet Foods, Inc. will invest $15.6 million to establish a new headquarters in Woodbridge, which will bring 169 new jobs.

The 130,000-square-foot development at 13405 Telegraph Road in Woodbridge, will also house the company’s sales, warehouse and cold storage operations that serve Virginia and parts of North Carolina.

International Gourmet Foods, Inc. is a leading wholesale distributor of gourmet specialty products, providing quality innovative items from around the world to a wide array of customers in the foodservice industry, such as restaurants, gourmet markets, caterers, bakeries and hotels.

Christina Winn, executive director of the Prince William County Department of Economic Development, said, “This investment really highlights Prince William County’s strategic location and competitiveness in the Greater Washington metropolitan area.”

Christine DiBenigno, president of International Gourmet Foods, Inc., was quoted in the county’s news release as saying, “Prince William County has welcomed us in ways that have enabled us not [only] to build our dream facility but [also] to invest in and grow our workforce,” said “This location provides proximity to our primary market, the DC Metropolitan area, and access to the I-95 corridor, which is essential to reaching a customer base that extends from the West Virginia border to Charleston, South Carolina. Prince William County is helping us invest in our future.”

The Board of County Supervisors approved a $250,000 grant from the Economic Development Fund Opportunity fund to assist with the development of the facility.

This project is expected to generate an estimated $1.5 million in new property taxes to Prince William County over the next 11 years, representing a 583% return on investment, according to the county news release.
