Great Lakes Cheese, an award-winning, premier manufacturer and packer of natural and processed bulk, shredded and sliced cheeses, expanded its existing manufacturing operations and built a new Corporate Headquarters in Northeast Ohio. The plant expansion includes an additional 290,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. The company currently employs more than 650 employees in Ohio and expects to hire an additional 400 over the coming years as a direct result of these projects.

According to Great Lakes Cheese President and CEO Dan Zagzebski, the company has grown from a small food stand in Cleveland to one of the largest cheese manufacturing and packaging facilities in the world.

“Our Legacy of excellence is innately tied to this community and our many Ohio employee-owners,” said Zagzebski.
