GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Grand Rapids has plenty of breweries and brewpubs, and is getting distilleries. Now a new alcoholic cider mill has plans to expand here.
Vandermill, LLC, which operates a cider making facility in Spring Lake, plans to turn a former beer distribution site into a large cider making and serving location.
Vandermill Tuesday won city commission support for tax incentives for the project.
City commissioner Rosalynn Bliss told WZZM 13: "They have a well established product; they're very well respected, they have a great product and so having that addition to Grand Rapids I think is really a great thing."
Vandermill plans to invest over $1.5 million in the project that will create 75 new jobs at its 435 and 505 Ball Avenue NE locations.
