The Edgewood Locker has announced plans to expand – while at the same time, transitioning out of the catering and event center business.
The locker says in the past few years, they’ve experienced a significant increase in the demand for their retail and wholesale products, as well as custom processing services.
On Thursday, the Edgewood Locker announced that they had acquired two acres of land north of their current facility last fall, where they will begin construction of an additional connected facility in the next year or two.
The Edgewood Locker says they’ll be entirely focused on custom processing, wholesale and retail, so they’ll be transitioning out of catering and the event center. The Event Center and catering business will be placed on the market. The locker will not be booking any more catering events, but they will still book events at the Event Center. If the Event Center is sold, the new buyer will have the opportunity to choose whether to go ahead with the scheduled events or work with the customer to make new arrangements. Meanwhile, all catering events will happen as scheduled through the end of the year.
The Edgewood Locker says they will not reducing employees as they transition out of the catering and event center business – those employees will be offered other opportunities within the business. And once the expanded facility is complete, the locker will look into adding at least twelve full-time employees.
