Yang’s Oriental Food Store
|About:||New start-up grocery store featuring local produce plus Asian specialty foods in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.|
|Investment:||A new 8,000 square foot market plus 4-5 jobs.|
Yang’s Oriental Food Store opened its doors in November 2017. This new market is bringing a variety of fresh, locally sourced produce alongside Asian specialty foods to the Mount Pleasant community. The 8,000 square foot store is located in a shopping area near Central Michigan University, an area lacking in fresh food access. In November 2017, Michigan Good Food Fund provided a $30,000 loan through Northern Initiatives to support Yang’s in purchasing initial inventory to open its doors. Financing is also helping Yang’s hire additional staff and bolster its marketing presence.
