Manitowoc, Wisconsin – (December 3, 2012) – The Cher-Make Sausage Company announced today that the recent fire at an outside storage building will not change or hinder the operations in the main plant or office area.

All damage was limited to nonessential facilities, and we will continue producing products as usual.” Mr. Chermak also noted that he appreciated the offers from his suppliers and venders to help out in any way possible to keep the Cher-Make products flowing as we head toward the holiday season. “We are glad to be a part of the Manitowoc community, and will take the opportunity to rebuild where needed to make the company even stronger.”
