We Now Know What’s Being Built Along Highway-14 West in Rochester
I'd seen the signs as I was driving by for a few weeks now, but we know now just which business is building a brand new location along Highway-14 in Rochester.
If you drive west from Rochester on Highway-14 (U.S. Highway 14, technically) just past the Country Road 22/Civic Center Drive overpass, there are several businesses located along the frontage road, along with High Point Church.
And a few weeks ago, I noticed some construction equipment at the end of the road, and land that was being cleared. Finally, I noticed a sign that said what's under construction at the site, but seeing as I usually drive by at 65 miles an hour, I could never read what was on the sign.
But I stopped over the weekend and I know now what's going on: That site will soon be the new Rochester location of Weller Brothers Landscaping.
I did a little research online and found out that Weller Brothers Landscaping (or Weller Brother of Rochester) is a firm based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It's celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and has also operated a location here in Minnesota's Med City since 2018. Their website says they provide landscaping design services to residential and business customers within 50 miles of Rochester.
The Post Bulletin's Jeff Kiger says the new 10,000-square-foot facility will house office space as well as office space for the firm's 10 employees. The story also said they hope to double that staff here in Rochester in the next year, as they move from their current location near the airport.
Speaking of Rochester businesses, how many of them can you identify... from above?!? Keep scrolling to see how many you know!
