Bush Brothers Relocating to Royal Palm Beach, Florida, Expanding Operations Capacity

Jan. 10, 2024
The move will add 25 jobs and give the company more processing, cold storage and office space.

Bush Brothers Provision Co., is relocating and expanding its operations, moving from West Palm Beach, Fla., to Royal Palm Beach, according to a release from the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County.

The fifth-generation family-owned business will also add 25 new jobs in the move, retaining 65 positions already on board. It will lease more than 42,000 square feet of space in the new facility. The expansion is a collaboration between McCraney, Colliers, CMC Design Build, and the Village of Royal Palm Beach, the release said.

Bush Brothers was established in 1925 as a local grocery store and meat market, and moved into a larger facility in 1931. The new facility in Royal Palm Beach will expand office space, cold storage areas and meat cutting and packing operations as well.

The company serves foodservice clients, yachts and private households from Miami to Orlando and Naples, with export business to the Bahamas, Caribbean and Central and South America.

A majority stake in Bush Brothers was acquired by private-equity firm Heartwood Partners last year, at which point the company expected to begin to invest in capacity growth.
