The first loan, for $250,000, was approved for CC THOR INVESTMENTS — NOROFLK, LLC. Calvin Thor and his wife Chelsie Englund are planning the purchase of a commercial real estate office located at 110 N. 37th St., Suite 402, in Norfolk, for their business Creekwood Chiropractic Clinic, P.C. Both Calvin and Chelsie are chiropractors in the business, along with Calvin’s father, who is retiring and selling his real estate in Norfolk to the couple under the newly formed real estate holding CC THOR INVESTMENTS – NORFOLK, LLC.
The second business loan was approved for River’s Edge Meat Locker, LLC, in Fullerton for the amount of $200,000. Brad and Candace Gleason are planning the construction of a meat locker to be located at 104 Fuller St. in Fullerton. River’s Edge Meat Locker, LLC will be a federally regulated customer-exempt slaughter and processing facility for the exclusive use of the livestock owner. River’s Edge will also purchase boxed meat and function as a retail exempt meat processing business, selling meat at its own store front. When completed, the facility will feature a modern 3,900-square-foot building on 1/3 of a city block, with the capability of harvesting 60 head a month, cattle and hogs combined.
“River’s Edge Meat Locker will provide a much needed service for local livestock producers that continues to exist in our rural communities. We look forward to Brad and Candace’s success in their new business endeavor,” said NENEDD Business Loan Specialist Jeff Christensen, adding, “It’s great to see a generational transfer of business succession in our local communities with CC THOR INVESTMENTS – Norfolk purchase of real estate. We wish Calvin and Chelsie continued success as they undertake their business venture.”
