Misfits Market opens a distribution center in West Jordan

Misfits Market, an online grocery service that sells imperfect but still-edible produce at affordable prices, has just opened a distribution center and customer service facility in West Jordan.

Launched in 2018 near Philadelphia, the firm has now expanded into 44 states, including Utah. The West Jordan location will serve as a base of operations for the Western part of the country. In addition to reducing food waste, the West Jordan facility employs over 150 Utahns with the potential to grow to 800 workers in the next five years.
