Curry County and Southwest Cheese Working Together
The community of Clovis, located in Curry County, New Mexico, has been the home of Southwest Cheese since its opening in 2006. The surrounding area has become a valuable partner to our company, providing our family of employees with an excellent choice of housing, retail businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, churches, entertainment and outdoor activities.
As a resident of Curry County, Southwest Cheese strives to be a good corporate neighbor to our community. We believe a robust economy is the success to a vibrant community. Therefore, we are committed to providing an excellent work environment that will attract, and keep, a talented workforce.
We are dedicated to providing economic opportunities in our community. It is estimated that Southwest Cheese and our employees spend approximately $700,000 annually in direct spending in the Clovis community, providing economic support to local businesses. We are also a proud member of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), assisting in emergency planning and preparedness programs.
Southwest Cheese believes that a good corporate neighbor gives back to the community. Our community involvement includes the generous support of local charities, and corporate sponsorships for school and sports organizations. Through employee contributions and corporate events, we are proud supporter of the United Way. Southwest Cheese also contributes corporate donations to the Clovis Municipal School Foundation and the Clovis Music Festival, and makes generous cash and cheese donations to a number of local charities.
