Jack Schmidt’s vision for a Fremont County “food hub,” continues to take shape. In the spring of 2019, Jack told County 10 he was moving forward with a plan to create a facility that would serve Wyoming-produced meals, allow food entrepreneurs to use a certified shared kitchen, and where folks could sell their products.
In October 2019, the plan moved from an idea in Jack’s mind to a physical building. The Riverton Local Food Hub opened and began operations in the former Airport Cafe at Riverton Regional Airport. Step one was opening the kitchen to serve travelers and locals breakfast and lunch.
Now, the food hub continues to expand. One issue that Jack regularly runs into is travelers who don’t necessarily have enough time to sit down and enjoy a meal. So, he’s got a plan to bring Wyoming made snacks and meals to the travelers.
County 10 reporter Amanda Fehring recently caught up with Jack. Together, they sat down over a meal and discussed the expansion plans on the County 10 Podcast.
