Confluence Food Group Expands St. Louis, Missouri, Facility
The company relocated from its 24,000-square-foot location at North Broadway to its new 113,000-square-foot facility on Garfield Avenue.
“Relocation to our new facility on Garfield Ave. enables both Dogtown Pizza and Fox River Dairy to meet the growing needs of their businesses,” said Jeff Tottleben, Managing Partner for Confluence Food Group. “The build-out will also allow us to incubate some additional food manufacturing startups and give access to local retail distribution. Remaining and expanding in the City of St. Louis was a top priority for us, and we believe a lot of good things are happening in and around the Jeff Vander Lou neighborhood. There’s great access to a capable local workforce, and we’re very excited for the next steps in the growth of these companies.”
For this expansion, Confluence Food Group will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.
“We congratulate Confluence Food Group for expanding in St. Louis and creating more opportunities for Missourians,” noted Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Our team is proud to have worked with our partners to assist this local employer in the latest chapter of their story. We look forward to seeing the company continue to grow and benefit its community.”
Confluence Food Group was formed in 2019 when Dogtown Pizza merged with Fox River Dairy. The company owns Dogtown Pizza, Fox River Dairy, and Crust & Sons LLC, which provide frozen pizza manufacturing, wholesale distribution of food products to the grocery and food service industry, and pizza crust manufacturing, respectively.
