A small business specializing in the aging of beef will be able to expand operations with a new processing facility thanks to a $100,000 investment made possible by the Country Roads Angel Network (CRAN).
Mountain Steer Meat Company of White Sulphur Springs makes West Virginia raised and processed beef available to local grocery stores, markets, and restaurants. By having its own processing facility in the target area, the company can provide a variety of fresh beef products to area residents and merchants immediately after packaging.
“The beauty of this investment is that Mountain Steer started with us as a client of the West Virginia Hive to seek help with its business plan, marketing, and logistics, and in a short time they have successfully secured a healthy investment to significantly expand operations,” said Judy Moore, Managing Director of CRAN and Executive Director of the WV Hive. “This represents true success for the business ecosystem we were seeking to develop when the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority and WV Hive secured U.S. Department of Commerce funding to start CRAN.”
