Wolverine Breaks Ground on 300,000 SF Food Manufacturing Facility Addition in Kentwood, Michigan

KENTWOOD, MICH. — Wolverine Building Group has broken ground on a 300,000-square-foot addition for Hearthside Bakery’s food manufacturing facility in Kentwood, about nine miles south of Grand Rapids. The $7 million project will expand storage space for the company, which manufactures snack bars, cookies, crackers, pretzels, croutons, breadcrumbs and other baked goods. Currently, Hearthside Bakery occupies a 255,000-square-foot location and stores raw ingredients in 53-foot semi-trailers at off-site locations around Michigan. Housing all the ingredients in one location will improve the company’s efficiency. Robert Grooters Development will own the new addition, and lease it to Hearthside Bakery.
