PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI-Good Foods Group LLC will be shifting its corporate headquarters from Chicago to a building it purchased here in LakeView Corporate Park.
The company, which says it will retain some operations in Chicago, purchased 10100 88th Ave. in Pleasant Prairie for $2.7 million on Jan. 23, according to The Business Journal. The company plans to renovate the 56,335-sf building and will use the building for its corporate headquarters and some production operations beginning in March. The firm, which is a manufacturer of preservative-free dips, salads, and sides, is expanding on its current 10,000-sf headquarters at 6851 W. Irving Park Road and other rented space in Chicago.
The firm, founded in 2007, expects to have between 50 and 75 people in the Pleasant Prairie facility within 60 days of its opening and could have up to 150 workers there within the first five years of operation. In November the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission considered and approved Site and Operational Plans for the corporate headquarters project.
Good Foods Group distributes its products nationally to retail and food service outlets such as: Costco, BJ’s, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Potbelly’s, Pret-A-Manger, Roti Mediterranean Grill, and Moe’s Southwest Grill. See story in The Business Journal.
