Face Rock Creamery Named a Fastest-Growing Private Company
“Oregon has many exceptional private companies, and we are thrilled to be ranked among them as one of the state’s fastest growing,” shared President Greg Drobot. “The last few years have challenged us to identify strategies to grow our market presence while staying true to our values of hands-on production, local farmer support, and sustainable practices. Every year Face Rock is available in more stores, and we love bringing a bit of Bandon to cheese lovers across the country.”
Face Rock Creamery restored cheesemaking to the Southern Oregon coast, one of the state’s historic cheddar production regions going back to the 1880s. Their goals from the beginning have been to create more local jobs, scale while maintaining traditional cheese making practices such as hand-turning cheddar, follow sustainable production practices, and bring an elevated Oregon cheese experience to consumers. Today, Face Rock has 91 employees. In September 2021, Face Rock Creamery won a $220,000 angel investment in the OregonAF program hosted by Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN).
