Chick-fil-A Supply, an affiliate of quick-service restaurant chain Chick-fil-A, plans to open a market distribution center in Maryland Heights, officials said Wednesday.

The company is investing $16 million in the new facility, which will service more than 40 Chick-fil-A restaurants in the region, according to a press release. The restaurant chain has about 22 locations in the immediate St. Louis area, and has at least two more in the planning stages, in Maryland Heights and in University City.

Chick-fil-A Supply plans to create over 60 new jobs at what will be a 100,000-square-foot distribution center in Riverport Trade Center, a $65 million industrial park that Kansas City-based NorthPoint Development began building a year ago at 13971 Riverport Drive.
