“As a nationwide distributor, timely delivery of our products to consumers is critical. Locating in SubTropolis has allowed us to reach 90% of the United States within two days and in these uncertain times, quick, reliable food delivery is more important than ever.”

Janna LandCo-Founder & COO

“It’s 70 and overcast every day, regardless of what’s going on outside. We load our trucks… unload our trucks in perfect weather conditions. It’s truly a green environment. We’re probably using about 75 percent less electricity underground than we would in an above-ground facility. Whether it’s electronics or whether it’s food, you don’t have temperature and humidity fluctuations and so you don’t have any condensation, moisture building up in anything. From that standpoint, in my opinion you can’t beat it.”

Joe ParisPresident of Paris Brothers

“The team at Hunt Midwest was able to accommodate our need for additional space so we could focus on the rapid changes impacting our business and ramp up operations as soon as possible.”

Janna LandCo-Founder & COO

“Our decision to expand our business to SubTropolis was the result of two specific needs. First, the layout is specific to shipment and shipping efficiency. Second, SubTropolis is in close proximity to all major shipping companies in the Kansas City metro area.”

eCommerce CompanyCEO

“We love it in SubTropolis because, as our space needs have grown, Hunt Midwest has been able to accommodate them without interruption to our business. As we expand our products and services, SubTropolis offers the flexibility to easily and cost-effectively grow right along with us – that’s not something we could do in a surface building.”

Joe ParisPresident of Paris Brothers

“When we toured SubTropolis, we immediately saw the opportunity it held for our company. The logistics alone are impressive, but the potential to grow our footprint within the underground and the access to high-speed connectivity helped us make our final decision to move here.”

eCommerce CompanyCEO

“The three things raw coffee needs to stay fresh are low light, stable temperatures and humidity control. Being at SubTropolis is perfect. We’re able to provide customers a good location for efficient distribution throughout the United States and ensure that their product will be its finest with our temperature-controlled facility.”
