Corporate Office Rebuild Underway
Rebuilding efforts have started on the Merchants Foodservice corporate office, located at 1100 Edwards Street in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, following the January 21 EF3 tornado.
The corporate office building, which includes warehouse space, sustained major damage during the tornado, including flood and roof damage. Employees have temporarily relocated to 117 Central Industrial Row in Purvis, Mississippi.
Company leaders expect the renovation process to be complete before the end of the year.
No employees were injured in the tornado, which killed four people in Hattiesburg during its 15-mile path across Forrest, Lamar and Perry counties. Operations were also unaffected.
