The Sugar River Dairy will move into the Fix Building in the former Purple Door Ice Cream space, 138 W. Bruce St. (Purple Door moved a few blocks away to 205 S. 2nd St.)

Sugar River Dairy hopes to start producing yogurt on site by the third week in March. 

This is the second facility for the small yogurt company. Owners Ron and Chris Paris have operated the first facility, located near Albany, Wis., for 12 years.

Sugar River Dairy will produce and sell natural and non-homogenized yogurt. It will also offer frozen yogurt.

"This production facility will focus on large quantity and bulk production for larger consumers like schools, medical facilities, caterers and bakeries," says Nancy Frank, manager of the Albany location.

Frank says they look forward to being in a highly populated area and believe it will give their yogurt more visibility.

"It will be one of the first Grade-A yogurt-making facilities in an urban area," says Frank.

Sugar River Dairy will share the space with Clock Shadow Creamery.

"We will collaborate to the extent that we can with Clock Shadow Creamery," says Frank. "They will be selling our products and providing us with a wonderful space to make delicious yogurt."
