Good Company: Cooper’s Foods

Every month Twin Cities Live picks a spot on the map — a town to really get to know and we then share the good news. This month we’re in Chaska. It’s not only the place TCL Host Steve Patterson calls him, but a town full of really cool history. Reporter Kelli Hanson found the oldest business in Chaska and takes us to Cooper’s Foods.

Cooper’s Foods recently celebrated 101-years and it all began with Gary Cooper’s grandfather Joe. It’s a business that’s moved around Chaska, but it now sits on the old Chaska Brickyard and has since the late 70s. 72-year-old Gary Cooper and his wife Sandy say they’ll stay in the business as long as they can and hope one day the company can be employee owned.
