Roasting Solutions, LLC (dba Verena Street Coffee) is a local company that has seen tremendous growth since opening its current coffee roasting facility five years ago. Led by the 4th generation of the Gantz family, Eric and Michael Gantz, the company’s popular coffee brands are sold in 700+ grocery stores – A number that grows every day.
The company plans to invest approximately $7 Million on state-of-the art production equipment, land, and to construct a new national headquarter location and manufacturing facility in the Dubuque Industrial Center South.The project will create at least 10 new jobs.
Greater Dubuque Development has worked with the company on the expansion since its inception and assisted the company in creating a Development Agreement with the City of Dubuque. As part of the agreement, approved last night by the Dubuque City Council, the company will purchase 12.03 acres and construct a new, 34,000 square foot facility.
In 1916, the Gantz family opened their first bottling company in the Dubuque area. One-hundred years later, Greater Dubuque Development salutes and thanks the Gantz Family for their continued investment in our community.
