Co-op Creamery

Seward Co-op is in the midst of working on the new Co-op Creamery and administrative offices at 2601 E. Franklin Ave. Located across the street from Wells Fargo bank, the building was built in 1920 by a multi-stakeholder co-op that processed and home delivered milk and other dairy products to its owners.

In addition to gaining much needed office space, the co-op is also returning the building to its original use as a food production facility. We are initiating plans to expand our bakery and meat production. The space will also include a retail café, the Co-op Creamery. We have hired Redesign to help with project management and Watson Forsberg as our general contractor.
