TWO RIVERS, Wisc. (WFRV) A new food and beverage processing facility could soon makes its home in Two Rivers.

According to City Manager Greg Buckley, Paragon Partners LLC has entered into a purchase agreement for the former Paragon manufacturing plant. The 320,000 square foot facility has been vacant for the past 15 years. 

Paragon Partners LLC has already secured a $250,000 loan from Manitowoc County. The Two Rivers City Loan Committee is now considering giving the group $750,000.

Buckley says if the deal goes through, more than 200 new jobs will become available.
