Last week, the City Council overwhelmingly approved the ULURP application for Bartlett Dairy to develop a new permanent home for milk distribution inside the JFK North Site.
Bartlett is a family-owned MWBE business that can now build a 54,000-square-foot dairy distribution center on one of the largest city-owned manufacturing properties.
The company has distributed dairy and dry goods since 1968. They employ about 500 people across three locations in Jamaica, Rochester and Newark.
Their largest contracts include the city’s Department of Education, Starbucks and the Archdiocese of New York.
The JFK North Site will now be Bartlett’s New York headquarters.
In celebrating the rezoning, Thomas Malave Jr., president of Bartlett Dairy, announced that they will also establish a scholarship fun for local graduating high school students.
Call that a win for everyone!
