KEENE, N.H. - C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., officially opened its new corporate headquarters in Keene, N.H. last week. The company's new offices provide over 350 corporate employees with a world-class workspace in a town that offers city amenities with small-community flavor.
"We are off to a great start in our Keene headquarters," said chairman and c.e.o. Rick Cohen. "Today is the first day of autumn, a new season, an appropriate time for us to cut the ribbon on our new home. We thank the state, the mayor, and all the members of the city government who helped us move here so successfully."
Mayor Michael E. J. Blastos added, "The city of Keene is extremely proud and pleased to welcome C&S as our newest corporate neighbor, and we look forward to their continued expansion and growth here in Keene."
Joining the mayor at the event were members of the city council and planning boards, as well as state officials and local partners in the building of the 45,000-square-foot space. Several C&S executives attended, as well. The company is planning additional "housewarming" events later this fall for neighbors of the facility and for employees and their families.

Founded in 1918, C&S provides distribution services to grocery chains and independent stores, delivering to more than 3,000 locations from its distribution centers in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, California, and Hawaii.
