Our Facility

Cheese Merchants of America moved into a newly renovated facility on July 1, 2014. Located at 1301 Schiferl Rd in Bartlett, Illinois, this facility is an impressive 277,000 square feet, over twice the size of the previous 105,000 square foot facility.

The space of the new facility continues to aid with order pick-ups, optimize manufacturing, and helps to facilitate order turnaround. The new facility has also allowed the opportunity to age cheese in-house. Cheese Merchants continues to offer the latest converting and packaging technologies for our quality cheese products.


Our state-of-the-art cheese converting facility ensures the highest quality products.

Our commitment to delivering superior quality product starts with our experts sourcing the finest hard cheeses in the world. That commitment extends to our world-class processing facility.
