FINAL PLANS APPROVED FOR GOLD STANDARD BAKING INC TO OCCUPY SPECULATIVE BUILDING AT HWYS 165 AND H
On January 9, the Plan Commission considered and approved site and operational plans for Gold Standard Baking, Inc. The company plans occupy the entire 204,387 square foot building located on approximately 12 acres at the southwest corner of Highways 165 and H. Gold Standard has plans to manufacture bakery products from the new location.
Gold Standard Baking is headquartered in the Chicago-area. The Pleasant Prairie location would allow the bakery to expand production. The facility would receive ingredients and process them via mixing, production, proofing, baking, cooling/freezing and packaging to produce finished bakery products for shipment to customers and off site warehousing. One large production line would be installed initially, with up to five or six additional lines possible in the future.
The facility would operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week. An average of 25 truck trips are expected to travel to and from the site on a daily basis. Approximately ninety full-time employees could work from the facility.
Plans to construct the speculative building were approved during July of 2015. Grading and construction for the building took place during the latter part of 2015 and 2016. If all proceeds as planned, the company could take occupancy during the summer of 2017.
