Saratoga Olive Oil Co. Plans Expansion

Saratoga Olive Oil Co. Plans Expansion

MOREAU — Saratoga Olive Oil Co. is seeking to convert a swimming pool contractor facility to a distribution center and new retail location. The facility is located at 1341 Route 9 in Moreau. According to Jim Martin, Zoning Administrator for the town of Moreau, the facility will also have office space as well.

Chad, Barbara and Clint Braidwood are the owners of Saratoga Olive Oil Co. which sells olive oils, balsamic vinegars and spices through their brick and mortar stores as well as through their website. The flagship store, in Saratoga Springs opened in 2011 and two other stores followed in Burlington Vermont and Lake Placid.

The planned distribution center was owned by Jabro Development LLC and was purchased by them in 2016 for $326,000. The facility lies on nearly two acres of land on the Route 9 corridor in Moreau.

“It’s an adaptive re-use of an existing site and building, which is good. The building over there seems to be most suited to what their needs are in terms of space,” said Martin.

A planning board meeting will take place on Monday April 15, at 7 p.m. at the Moreau Office Complex located at 351 Reynolds Rd. in Moreau. In the meeting the plans will be subject to a public hearing, which is typical for development in this part of Route 9, according to Martin.
