Food Service Specialties
Food Service Specialties had outgrown their Wisconsin facility and was in negotiation with a Western Wisconsin community to build a new facility. The financial package in Wisconsin hit a snag and, with a reference from a local business leader, we made contact with the principals from Food Service.
Frustrated with the lack of progress in Wisconsin , the Port knew that if Food Service was going to locate to Red Wing, we needed to perform. The Port was able to provide Food Service with a development-ready facility, an industrial revenue bond, tax increment, and a State sponsored low interest loan.
Construction began in near record time and Food Service has plans to expand their Red Wing facility in 2006.
