Bonanza Bean was established in 2008 with much anticipation and excitement. In January of that year, the team began the process of looking for a convenient location for our edible bean clientele. By April, the management team had secured the land, purchased equipment, and begun construction on a green-field site on the edge of Morris. The company was officially registered with the state of Minnesota as an LLC and fourteen investors secured the capital needed for the project, making the dream a reality! The Bonanza Bean team built a state-of-the-art kidney bean processing facility specifically designed to supply our customers with superior quality beans. By October, the first dark red kidney beans were rolling off the line and being loaded onto trucks for customers around the United States. Bonanza Bean was on track to meet its first year goals.
We have been fortunate enough to be guided by a talented board of directors. Each director comes with a unique and distinctive agri-business perspective that has been instrumental in providing good counsel and advice.
In our first year of business, the majority of our production came from local growers and investors. After a couple of years, the Bonanza Bean team was well-positioned for growth and had gained valuable industry experience. Since its inception, the company has grown substantially each year and is now a major supplier of dark and light red kidney beans to buyers and consumers all over the world.
Bonanza Bean uses the industry's latest and most efficient processing equipment for cleaning edible beans. Our extensive process ensures that we deliver a reliable and consistent product to all of our customers. When Mother Nature delivers challenges, such as a wet rainy fall, we utilize the best equipment available to process our product and provide predictable, consistent value for our clientele. Our growth over the years has enabled us to purchase a dryer that is able to dry large quantities of edible beans when necessary, which gives our producers the ability to bring in product when environmental conditions are challenging. Throughout the years, the Bonanza Bean team continued to add storage and cleaning capacity for edible beans, which has allowed us to grow our sales and marketing reach each and every year since inception. Due to committed ownership and an outstanding team of dedicated employees, Bonanza Bean is optimistic about the future!
We at Bonanza Bean aspire to be at the forefront of the Industry with the dedication of our employees, growers and owners, to be "Simply the Best!"
