FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - A new grocery warehouse is coming to Forth Worth with more than 500 good paying jobs. 

The McLane Company, based in Temple, plans to build a 625,000 square-foot facility on Oak Grove Road east of I-35W.

The $18 million facility could open as early as March and is expected to be fully operational by the end of next year.

McLane is one of the largest wholesalers of groceries and foodservice supplies to stores and restaurants.
