The eagle-eyed and intrepid David Ferber spotted some sign painting on Rochester's 11th Avenue Northwest today and tipped me off to the action.
I need to get out more, because I had no idea anything was cooking at the HSL Building at 612 11th Ave. N.W.
Someone painted a very nice logo sign on the side of the industrial building today for Minnesota Artisan Fudge.
The 20,000-square-foot complex was sold to 612 11 Ave. NW LLC at end of Dec. for $150,000, according Olmsted County property records. I wonder if that's right.
I don't usually track commercial property sales under $300,000. I may need to adjust my methods.
The beige concrete block building that's a few feet from the railroad tracks is also sporting brand new, shiny Hayfield Windows. Construction seems to be underway inside.
Minnesota Artisan Fudge seems to be based, or at least connected to, Mantorville.
It looks like I need to do some sniffing around for chocolate. Heh.
