A Mexican food company plans to build a $21.3 million warehouse and office complex in an old warehouse district in the Segundo Barrio, one of El Paso’s oldest neighborhoods. The new complex will become the company’s United States headquarters. The new cold-storage facility and office complex, totaling 59,000 square feet, will be on seven acres.
Grupo Bafar, a Chihuahua company that owns the Bafar meat brand, one of Mexico’s top-selling lunch meats, will put the new facility across the street from the cold storage warehouse it currently operates at 1601 E. Fourth Ave., in the Segundo Barrio in South El Paso. The company will be out of that building in 2024.
The company owns the six-store Valley Supermarket chain in El Paso and Frontier Foods Meat Market at 2900 Alameda Ave. in South-Central El Paso.
The city and county will provide up to $846,693 in property tax rebates.
