In almost every corner of our City, you can find something you didn’t expect.
At McRee and Kinghighway, a successful local company is making your breakfast right now. CHP Blenders’ business is blending flour and other ingredients into pancake mix. The company likes its location (between I-44 and I-64 and adjacent to railroad access) so much that it is planning a 24,000 sf expansion of its plant. BHP expects that the expansion will create several new jobs, bringing its workforce to more than 30 employees. The addition will be completed this summer.
Do you think your company would also thrive in the City? Think about this: The LRA is preparing to issue a Request for Proposals for a 9 acre site at 4658 Rosalie. Rodney Crim and his team believe that its size and access to I-70 will make it an attractive opportunity for industrial development — or retail.
