Rapid growth spurs grocer demand

In sun-kissed Southeastern Washington, Kennewick is at the forefront of growth with booming residential neighborhoods hungry for grocery stores.


Why Kennewick?


Proximity to the interstate, local produce, an unparalleled quality of life, and gaps in service amidst rapid residential expansion make Kennewick an attractive opportunity for grocers. From the booming Southridge neighborhood at the southern entrance of Kennewick, to the flourishing Columbia Center and West Clearwater growth in the west, site location opportunities for grocers are timely.

Kennewick's growth is attributed to a talented labor force, steady job market, affordable cost of living, and a casual easy-living vibe. The pursuit of happiness stretches 27 square miles and features a variety of sports and recreational activities, entertainment, and the region’s retail shopping hub supporting tourism and family fun. Nestled in the heart of Washington wine country, Kennewick citizens and visitors enjoy 27 parks, 4 fantastic golf courses, and more than 160 wineries within a 50 mile radius.
