Officials from General Mills were joined by Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner for a ribbin-cutting ceremony on Tuesday marking the opening of the food company’s 1.5 million-sq-ft distribution center at the RidgePort Logistics Center in Wilmington, IL, the governor’s office announced in a press release.

Brands like Cheerios and Betty Crocker will be distributed throughout the country from the new site.

“The Wilmington customer service facility will be a key addition and a critical location for the General Mills distribution network,” Mike Nordstrom, vice president of global workforce solutions at General Mills, said in a statement. “From this location, we will deliver top-selling cereals, snacks, and other products to customers across America.”

The site is expected to receive Silver LEED certification for its environmentally-friendly design, according to the governor’s office.

The Will County-based RidgePort Logistics Center is a large industrial park development near Chicago that is located near major highways and is served by a rail connection.
