Thrive Market, a membership-based site-commerce platform with a mission to make healthy living easy and affordable, is opening a West Coast distribution center in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center in Reno, NV and plans to hire up to 400 new employees. The company will be investing $3.5 million in capital equipment toward the new operation, and received business incentives from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development last month.
“We’re thrilled to open our new Thrive Market distribution center in Reno and bring more job opportunities to the region,” said Nick Green, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Thrive Market. “Opening this distribution center will allow us to provide greater access to affordable and healthy food nationwide.”
Thrive Market delivers natural and organic food products to its customers. The company’s list of strategic partners include Annie’s, Seventh Generation, Bob’s Red Mill, Gaia Herbs, Nutiva, Smarty Pants, Bragg, Acure, and Late July, plus a new Thrive Market branded line of items. For every paid membership, Thrive Market donates a membership to a family in need.
“The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center’s proximity combined with the tremendous benefits of doing business in Nevada continues to draw attention from a variety of industries, including health,” said Pat Whitten, Storey County manager. “We’ve heard it many times that Storey County makes doing business in Nevada a viable option and this is another prime example of what regional collaboration can do. We’re proud to welcome Thrive Market to our growing community of businesses that are calling northern Nevada home.”
“I am very excited and pleased that Thrive Market has chosen Northern Nevada to relocate their operations here and we believe this is an ideal location to grow their business,” said Mike Kazmierski CEO of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN). “Healthy living and the proper nutrition that supports a healthy lifestyle for everyone is what Thrive Market is all about and a great fit for our region.”
Business partners that assisted Thrive Market in its location decision include CBRE-Dan Buhrmann, Eric Bennett, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Nevada Job Connect, and Storey County.
