ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - A restaurant equipment and supply company is planning to build a distribution center in south Georgia and create more than 100 jobs.

Gov. Nathan Deal said in a statement Thursday that the online retailer WebstaurantStore is planning to invest $10 million in a distribution center in Albany and create 150 jobs over the next three years.

Deal says the company, which is based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is planning to occupy a 472,000 square-foot facility. Officials say the company’s goal is to provide next-day shipping to customers. Deal says the company is expected to begin hiring for the new positions in December.
