Capshaw to Buy ConAgra Property

Today, the Progress is reporting that Dave Matthews Band manager Coran Capshaw is in the process of purchasing the former ConAgra plant out in Crozet. That plant closed six months ago, leaving six hundred people without employment. Though there’s no shortage of white-collar jobs in Central Virginia, people who had worked at the plant for years had little choice of employment, based on their training. Thankfully, Coran is hoping to rent the space to another frozen food manufacturer. Coran has also purchased land behind Pantops, seven acres in Fifeville, and the old Bon Ton Café on the Mall.

  • Nothing informative to add, but I think that’s pretty cool. I was worried the plant would end up a giant rusted waste separating Charlottesville from Crozet.
