Beverage development company, Flavorman, has broken ground on the site of its new facility expansion at 809 South 8th Street.
The project represents an $8.5 million investment to scale up Flavorman’s state-of-the-art “Beverage Campus” and better serve demand for their custom beverage development services.
The addition will cover 28,000 square feet and connect to the company’s main laboratory. Once complete, it will boost production capacity, expanding Flavorman’s blending, bottling/canning, processing and bulk storage operations.
The project is the latest in a series of expansions at Flavorman in the last few years as the company continues to experience exponential growth.
In 2006, the company rehabbed the existing 24,000-square-foot building at 809 South 8th Street, believing it would be more space than they could ever use.
Six years later, the company purchased a neighbouring building to create the nation’s premier educational distillery, Moonshine University. In 2018, the company added office space at 827 South 8th Street.
Together, Flavorman and Moonshine University make up a “Beverage Campus” that houses a fully equipped educational distillery, state-of-the-art classroom, production facility with a custom bottling line, extensive sensory library and a beverage innovation laboratory.
Flavorman has developed more than 70,000 beverage formulations for brands worldwide, while Moonshine University has hosted hands-on classes for students from all 50 states and 44 countries.
Construction on the upcoming addition to the campus is estimated to complete during fall of 2022.
