A Peek Behind Green Door Distilling Co.’s New Venture

InterCom 2nd Friday Speakers’ Series Jan 8th, 2016 held at KVCC’s Anna Whitten Hall.

Entrepreneur Josh Cook, co-founder of Green Door Distilling, will share his company’s marketing and business vision at the InterCom 2nd Friday Speakers’ series Jan. 8.

Green Door, which officially launched in Nov. 2014, cites the success of the region’s craft brewing industry and their love for whiskey as inspiration for its own ambitions. Cook says the area’s abundance of natural resources and its legacy of entrepreneurialism also bode well for startups like his, which capitalize on local resources. Green Door uses local grain to ensure fresh, local flavors and notes in its distinctive spirits. The distillery promises to Make Whiskey Approachable for All.

The distillery’s location in the City of Kalamazoo’s Rivers Edge district is also central to Green Door’s plans for growth, which include manufacturing, a Tasting Room, a Whiskey Garden and food trucks. The Rivers Edge is northeast of downtown and is undergoing unprecedented urban renewal of what once featured warehouses, commercial, and industrial businesses. Today it boasts an eclectic mix of businesses, shops, restaurants and affordable apartments, all within walking distance of Green Door, at 429 East North Street, Kalamazoo.
