Waterville, Maine (September 15, 2016) - Maine Crisp Company, a specialty food business making gluten-free crackers, reached capacity in its home kitchen and moved to a facility to increase production and packaging. The company had inquired about a recently vacated restaurant space, former home of Toast Xpress, at 10 Railroad Square in downtown Waterville. The facility was available and the owner was ready and willing to support Maine Crisp utilizing the space for business expansion.
“We are thrilled to find a bright, already outfitted facility, so close to home and with great neighboring businesses” said Karen Getz, Maine Crisp co-founder. The space is located in downtown Waterville, offering good visibility and ample parking for retail customers. The company will offer coffee from Carpe Diem Coffee Roasting Co. and a limited number of fresh baked gluten-free treats for others working in the building and local customers.
The facility is dedicated gluten-free so those with Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity can enjoy baked goods without concern. Karen said, “We've already had curious customers purchasing pastries and coffee and thoroughly enjoying them, many of whom don’t have dietary restrictions but still enjoy what we offer. We look forward to building a local team and sharing our experience and skills in the production of specialty foods.”
