Bernatello’s Pizza, a frozen pizza manufacturer and distributor, is expanding its facility in Kaukauna.
The $24 million project is expected to create 48 jobs over the next three years. Bernatello’s recently took on a 30,000-square-foot expansion to the company’s Kaukauna facility.
Since 1982, family-owned Bernatello’s has facilities throughout the Midwest, first headquartered in Edina, Minnesota. They have manufacturing facility’s in Maple Lake, Minnesota and Eau Claire.
Bernatello brands include Brew Pub, Bellatoria, Real’Za, Pizza Corner, Hangry Bear, Orv’s and Roma.
“The company has experienced steady growth since our acquisition of Orv’s Pizza in 2012 and we are committed to making Bernatello’s an employer of choice in the area,” said Dave Ramsay, Bernatello’s president and second-generation owner.
In addition to the jobs expected to be created, studies show that the project could indirectly generate 69 additional jobs in the region.
