Kalona Creamery, the newest member of the Open Gates Business Development Corporation family, has announced their Shop & Deli will open its doors in December 2016. The grand opening, which was originally scheduled for late fall, has been delayed due to unexpected encounters in the remodeling process. Currently construction crews are busy finishing the retail space, installing doors and windows in the new entrance, and creating three new public restrooms, including one that is handicap accessible.
The Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli, located on Highway 1 outside Kalona, Iowa, will feature numerous products made in Iowa including cheese curds, specialty meats and cheeses, pastries, coffee, and much more! The Shop & Deli will also feature delicious, high quality-made fresh daily- soups, salads, and sandwiches.
Kalona Creamery, formerly Twin County Dairy, Inc., closed its doors in September of 2014. Since then, the rural community and local economic development authorities have been watching this property closely. Bill Evans, Open Gates CEO, says, “We are pleased with the progress we’ve made at Kalona Creamery and can’t wait to open our doors to the community this winter!”
