Facility Location is one of the theory problems studied most extensively in practice. It has obvious appeal in industry and is the subject of numerous books and optimization heuristics.

I especially like how the special case of the "Fermat-Weber problem" in the plane was already studied for its use in practice (minimizing industrial transportation cost) in 1909.
