NEWARK – Food delivery service HelloFresh will soon put down stakes for a new distribution facility in the city's Ironbound district.

The Germany-based company will occupy a 352,000-square foot space at 60 Lister Avenue, close to Port Newark and the New Jersey Turnpike, according to real estate brokerage firm CBRE Group Inc.

The company expects to hire a total of 321 employees to staff the facility, and retain 89 other New Jersey-based workers.

HelloFresh opened a 44,000-square foot warehouse and storage facility in Linden in February 2015. The company was later awarded a 10-year, $25.1 million tax credit from the state to expand its operations in New Jersey rather than Pennsylvania.

According to its website, the company ships more than one million meals per month across the continental U.S. and much of the world.
