Meal kit production company FreshRealm is moving its headquarters from California to Dallas-Fort Worth.

Last year, the company began construction on a new facility in Lancaster on North Dallas Avenue. Soon, FreshRealm is expected to call the metroplex home, joining numerous other California companies making the move to North Texas.

Some 237 companies have left California since 2005, citing the state’s expanding regulatory and taxation environment, as previously reported by The Dallas Express. More than half of those companies have moved to Texas.

In November, The Dallas Express reported that Boingo Wireless Inc. had officially opened its new corporate headquarters at The Star in Frisco after leaving its previous long-time home in Los Angeles. Earlier this year, Psychemedics relocated its headquarters from a suburb of Boston to Dallas as part of the company’s growth strategy.

FreshRealm fulfills and produces meal kits for brands like Blue Apron and Amazon Fresh. While the company has not provided further details, the move from San Clemente, California, to DFW will require FreshRealm to fill several vacant positions.

“We are thrilled to strengthen FreshRealm’s roots in the great state of Texas, where we will continue our focus on transforming the future of the surging meal solutions space,” said Snow Le, FreshRealm president, per WFAA.

“As someone who has raised my family in Texas, I know the rich heritage of hard work and incredible food this state offers, and Lancaster provides an ideal location for expanding our Texas-based workforce. We are especially excited to be doing business in a dynamically growing region that is actively investing in its people and businesses.”

The news comes in the wake of FreshRealm’s acquisition earlier this year of the U.S. operations and supply chain infrastructure of Marley Spoon, a subscription-based meal kit provider, reported WFAA. As part of the deal, FreshRealm took possession of multiple production and fulfillment facilities, including one in Dallas.

FreshRealm’s new 88,000-square-foot facility is located at 3301 N. Dallas Ave.
