Performance Food Group, Inc. (PFG) is expanding its PFG Milton’s food distribution facility in Oakwood with a 174,000-square foot building on 43 acres adjacent to the current operation at 3501 Old Oakwood Road.

PFG Milton’s currently employs over 500 people at the Oakwood location and expects to hire a substantial number of people over the next two years. The company will make a significant investment in the land, building and equipment.
