As competition heats up in McAllen, some distributors will expand into San Antonio to be closer to their customers, he added.

Abasto plans to begin phase two construction about one year after phase one is completed in 2015.

The company expects the project to create more than 500 jobs in the first three years and more than 1,000 jobs in five years.

Abasto Properties LLC is a sister company of Abasto Corp., which has built and operated five wholesale markets in Mexico and South Texas since 1983, including the McAllen Produce Terminal.
