H-E-B to expand digital presence, develop world-class tech facility

Facility in east Austin set for completion in spring 2019

SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B announced major expansion plans Wednesday for its digital properties across the company.

The San Antonio-based grocer is planning to develop a world-class facility and innovation lab for its digital team in Austin.

H-E-B will turn its recently renovated industrial warehouse into a creative and collaborative workspace for Austin-based partners of the grocer’s digital team and Favor’s corporate headquarters. 

Favor is the on-demand delivery service that is a wholly owned subsidiary of H-E-B.

The two-story, 81,000-square-foot facility is located at 2416 East Sixth Street and set for completion in 2019.

“This state-of-the-art space will be a hub for creativity and innovation as we continue to develop the ultimate digital experience for our customers,” said Jag Bath, H-E-B chief digital officer and Favor CEO and president.

H-E-B and Favor plan to add several hundred jobs and are actively hiring.

The grocer also announced it will expand its H-E-B Delivery and H-E-B Curbside service to 165 locations across the state by the end of this year.
