Top Seedz can make about a million boxes of crackers each year from its home base on Cayuga Road in Cheektowaga.
It will be able to make about six times that many once it moves into its new headquarters and production space in downtown Buffalo.
The reigning 43North grand prize winner has inked a long-term lease with Iskalo Development Corp. to occupy 35,000 square feet at 101 Oak St., near Braymiller Market and the Central Library.
About 5,000 square feet will be administrative space while the rest will be used to dramatically expand production capacity. Top Seedz CEO Rebecca Brady said she hopes to move in by March 2023 following renovations to the space.
“I can’t wait to get in there and get going with our plans of getting our name out there, selling more crackers and building a bigger company,” Brady said. “We’ve doubled our sales every year. We’re on track to double again and just continue with that growth pattern.”
