Food Enterprise Center Grand Opening. Congratulations Sue and Vernon County, Wisconsin!
My friend Sue Noble is a great economic developer.
Yesterday Sue and a zillion friends including me celebrated the Grand Opening of their Food Enterprise Center in Viroqua.
This building was a manufacturing plant and a hub for good regional jobs for decades. When the owners shut the plant down Sue and her team acted boldly.
Sue focused on food as economic development. In doing so she converted a problem into a world class asset.
Best of all though, is that Sue dedicated the re-opening of this facility to the men and women who lost their livelihoods when the former plant shut down. Many were with us at the celebration today.
Congratulations Sue and to everyone involved with today's Grand Opening of the Food Enterprise Center!
