DISTRIBUTION WAREHOUSE TO OPEN IN FENNIMORE

A beer distributor from Middleton will be

opening a distribution warehouse in

Fennimore. Frank Beer Distributors has agreed

to buy just under four-acres of land in the

city’s industrial park, and to build a 9,000

square foot warehouse at the site.

It’ll be located at the corner of Dodge and

Dewey Streets.

The building will have an office and a small

cooler area. Semis will unload product at the

warehouse, and five route trucks will be

based from the warehouse. Those trucks

will then service a 17 county area in western

Wisconsin. Fennimore City Clerk

Margaret Sprague says Fennimore was chosen

as the site for the distribution warehouse,

because of its’ location between Madison

and La Crosse.

The Fennimore Common Council has

approved the sale of the lot to Frank Beer

Distributors, for $1 an acre. Sprague says

it’s part of the city’s investment incentive

program. Land is sold for $1 an acre, for every

$100,000 in development. The warehouse

project cost around $600,000. It’s hoped

the sale of the land will be closed on by

no later than May 31st, with construction

after that. Jim’s Building Center of Fennimore

will be the contractor for the warehouse

project.
