Specialty Cheese Co. to Expand Reeseville Operation
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/13/2019
Specialty Cheese Company Inc., one of the nation's top manufacturers of ethnic cheeses and baked cheese snacks, is expanding its facility in Reeseville. The $1.65 million project is expected to create 36 jobs over the next two years.
"Specialty Cheese's investment in Wisconsin shows the company's continued commitment to our state and their workforce," said Mark Hogan, secretary and CEO of Wisconsin Economic and Development Corp. "This expansion will require a significant capital
investment on the part of the company, and WEDC is proud to provide support to make this a viable project for the company and its employees."
WEDC is supporting the project by authorizing up to $100,000 in state income tax credits over the next three years. The actual amount of tax credits Specialty Cheese Company will receive is contingent upon the number of jobs created and the amount of
capital investment during that period.
The company was founded in Reeseville in 1991, when the Scharfman family purchased five old cheese factories dating back to the 1860s. Since then, they have continued to expand and modernize, purchasing a local high school and converting it into a cheese
factory in 2003.
