If you noticed a lot of construction activity happening at the corner of Mulford and Baxter Road and have wondered "What's going on? "

Well, here's the scoop about what's going up in the field.

According to the Rockford Register Star, the building you see happening is the new warehouse for Berner Foods and Beverages.

This Thursday they broke ground on their new "675,000-square-foot facility in the Rock 39 Industrial Park" located at the corner of Mulford and Baxter Road.

"Berner, a maker of shelf-stable dips, sauces, aerosol cheese, ready-to-drink coffee and other beverages", Baxter Road facility will employ up to 75 people to start and then "grow to 125 employees."

Oh, wow!

I drive by this practically everyday. I've watched the bulldozers moving dirt and the huge cement slabs being hauled, swung over and locked into place by a crane. I wondered what was going in there. I kept looking for a sign.

Now I don't have to. The mystery has been solved.
