Capital Campaign Launched

The co-op’s launch party for the 2014 capital campaign was a lively and successful event. Around 200 co-op owners and community members visited the Franklin Cooperative Creamery building at 2601 E. Franklin Ave. to tour the space and learn about investment opportunities in the co-op. Direct investments from owners will help make possible a new store at 38th Street and 3rd Avenue, and a new administration and food production facility in the Creamery.

Historical photos and information about the Creamery as it operated in the 1920s and '30s were on display, along with preliminary site plans for the Friendship store and the Creamery’s second floor offices. From the appetizers provided by the co-op’s Deli to the live music, drinks, and camaraderie, the capital campaign launch was a festive evening.
