USA, KS: Transport Brewing working on second facility in Gardner
Like any new business, starting up a brewery can be a hard process. Transport Brewery, which opened in 2018, was no stranger to those struggles. After overcoming the typical obstacles to opening a new business, Transport has become a staple at the Johnson Drive location in Shawnee, Kansas, flatlandkc.org reported on September 28.
In fact, Transport has been doing so well in Shawnee that expansion plans are now in the works. In an announcement on their Facebook page, Transport broke the news that they are working on a second facility to be located in downtown Gardner, Kansas.
The bigger location will allow Transport to develop new beers without clogging up the production pipeline for mainstays. The bigger facility also will give the brewery an opportunity to add an on-site kitchen rather than rely on food trucks out front. Finally, a bigger building means more space for guests.
For anyone reading this and worrying that their current location will go away, fret not. Transport plans on keeping the Shawnee location in addition to the new Gardner spot. While no formal construction plans have been announced, they are hoping to have the new facility open at some point in 2022. When it does, you can count on us to be among some of the first customers to help them celebrate.
