Processors (www.TFProcessors.com), a wholesale contract manufacturer of baked goods, and nuphoriq (www.nuphoriq.com), a creative agency. That’s Caring and nuphorIQ will occupy 5,000 square feet of the 1175 McCabe building with the balance satisfying storage needs and being offered for short term leases. “As a small business that continues to lead the corporate catering industry, we are proud to expand Tasty Catering in Elk Grove Village, an exceptional place offering business owners a prime location and great local talent,” said Larry Walter, Tasty Catering principal and cofounder.
