Bartlett Dairy ground breaking in Springfield Gardens brings economic development to southeast Queens

Southeast Queens economic development had a huge boost on Thursday, Aug. 12, when city and state officials joined community leaders to break ground on a new headquarters and distribution site for Bartlett Dairy Inc. and its affiliates.

The minority-owned, family-run local business will develop a 54,000-square-foot dairy distribution center on a significant portion of the JFK North Site, one of the largest city-owned manufacturing-zoned properties.
