Frito Lay Distribution Center

Delmar, MD

Frito Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, is an established national brand that manufactures, markets, and sells snack foods. Upon outgrowing their former space, they began their search for a new location on the Delmarva Peninsula. With very specific requirements in mind, the brand contacted Gillis Gilkerson for help in sourcing, and possibly constructing a new facility.

Our development team identified available sites for new construction and worked with Frito Lay to narrow down the options. Ultimately, Gillis Gilkerson purchased a 3-acre parcel from the Town of Delmar, Maryland located at 30208 Foskey Lane. From there, our construction and development teams worked together to construct a +/- 7,700 square foot pre-engineered metal building for the client. Frito Lay was delivered a brand new, state-of-the-art building compliant with all national requirements.

“Gillis Gilkerson is awesome. They built the building so they knew it better than anyone else. We know they have a great reputation in the area and that’s why we decided to go with them for the renovation.”

“We embarked on a journey to create a state of the art high definition television studio and have completed that mission. The expertise from Gillis Gilkerson in all aspects of the building construction was a blessing as this project has numerous technical and on-air related projects that held the attention of our own staff. Thank you for going the extra step in making this complicated project a complete success for Draper Holdings and the entire Delmarva viewing audience.”
