We’re looking forward to growing the company by strengthening our partnerships with our customers and quickly developing innovative new products and packaging options.”
“We’re thrilled to add W&W Dairy to the Main Street portfolio,” says Ryan Davis, managing partner at Main Street. “This is our second investment in the Hispanic cheese industry, and we’re looking forward to working closely with Franz Hofmeister in a space where we both have a lot of experience.
