C. Coakley’s new Menasha location will feature more than 477,000 square feet of state-of-the-art food-grade warehouse space and logistics support. The company also seeks to separately lease 24,000 square feet of office space located on the riverside property. With plans to take immediate occupancy, Coakley said he expects to hire 25-30 full time employees in Menasha, including warehousing staff, logistics personnel, straight truck drivers, project managers, forklift drivers, sales personnel, and operations and sales managers.
