Acorn Distributors Cuts Ribbon on New Brownsburg Headquarters

Browning was honored to join Acorn Distributors for a ribbon cutting ceremony at their new headquarters (1625 West Northfield Drive, Brownsburg) on Thursday, July 20th alongside Brownsburg Town Council members, representatives from the Town of Brownsburg, and Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

Acorn Distributors, Inc. is a family-owned and certified Women’s Business Enterprise janitorial and foodservice distributor with operations in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. Founded in 1976, Acorn Distributors has grown from a small restaurant supply house into a multi-million-dollar distributor of disposable paper and plastic, janitorial supplies and equipment, chemicals, sanitary maintenance materials, and foodservice supply products.

The distributor needed to grow its warehouse facility on the west side of Indianapolis but was unable to find suitable land near its current location.  Browning provided Acorn development services – securing a site, then assisting with rezoning, variances, as well as filing for a 10-year tax abatement.

In January of 2022, Acorn announced its plans to build a larger facility on Northfield Drive in Brownsburg and Browning broke ground as General Contractor in May of that year with Acorn moving into the building in June of 2023.

“The move to our new location has been greatly anticipated and we are thrilled to have this space to better serve our current customers as well as our prospective customers.”
Jennifer Rosenberg
Second-Generation Owner of Acorn

“The updated facilities are an additional benefit to the move that provides for our employees a fresh, modern work environment for an improved work experience,” continued Rosenberg.

The footprint and layout of the new facility’s Distribution Center is crucial to Acorn’s continued growth in its current markets and beyond as the site also provides Acorn expansion opportunities to the facility as they continue to grow.

Acorn’s build-to-suite facility is part of the new Northfield Drive Commercial Park.  Building 1 currently has 105,057 square feet available with additional build-to-suit sites available on the west side of Northfield Drive.  For more information visit

The new location boasts a high-quality school system, unique parks and trails, a strong business climate, and is just down the street from amenity-rich Downtown Brownsburg. (Rated by SmartAsset as the #1 Suburb and ranks them as #18 for Best Places to Live.)

"Acorn Distributors' well-established, family and woman-owned business exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit that Brownsburg is all about. We're proud to support Acorn Distributors and look forward to their continued success."

Brownsburg Town Council President
