Frozen Pizza Co's Redmond Relocation Pushed Back

REDMOND, OR -- A frozen pizza company’s plans to relocate to Redmond are delayed. Wild Mike’s Pizza tells KBND News construction on their 270,000 square foot facility likely won’t begin until July. However, their Enterprise Zone agreement, which provides tax breaks and some fee waivers, expires at the end of March.

Redmond Economic Development Director Steve Curley told County Commissioners the company is excited for the move, “They purchased property, a few years ago, on the corner of 9th Street and Antler in Redmond. That property will eventually become a campus, as they call it. So, they’re very invested in paying their employees well.”

Curley said the company is motivated to move from Clackamas, “They’re a growing company. The last couple of years have put them behind in the school lunch program because schools weren’t delivering lunches because there weren’t students in schools. Now they’re coming out of that.” 

Commissioners on Monday approved an extension to the Enterprise Zone agreement until the end of the year. Redmond had already agreed to extend the deal.

Curley told County Commissioners extending that deal is good for the community, “It’ll encompass 114 jobs; they’ll bring about 64 over and add 50 new jobs. The wages will exceed the county average. The initial building is about 170,000 square feet.”

Company officials expect construction on the first facility to take 18 to 20 months.
