Food City Project Breaks Ground Next Week

Groundbreaking for the new Food City project will take place next week.

Developer Wayne Cravens confirmed the move Tuesday during a meeting of Putnam County’s Joint Economic Development Board.

The new shopping center will be built on 10th Street near the intersection of Highway 111. This project includes the widening of 10th Street from Highway 111 to Old Kentucky Road.

The President/CEO of Food City said in the past that a 2021 opening date is the goal. The company’s new Cookeville supermarket will bring between 150 and 175 new jobs. The 54,000 square foot building will be one of the company’s largest and offer numerous products like a bakery, deli, beer and wine department and a Starbucks.

The City of Cookeville began working with the company in 2014. The next closest Food City is located in Crossville.
