Partners Revive Historic Building
The Garment Factory Events center is owned by Todd and Billy Bemis, owners of Bemis Group contractors, while the facility is operated and managed by Kwang Casey. Garment Factory Events' services include its exclusive catering.
Bemis Group is a leader in commercial and residential projects in Central Indiana. For more than 30 years, Todd and Billy have been constructing, designing and developing quality building projects that exceed their customer expectations.
In 1986, they started Investment One, a real estate investment company. Later, they rebranded as Bemis Group to reflect a more personal touch.
Their initial work included commercial, retail and some residential projects. As their business evolved, they took on more comprehensive projects - including restoration of buildings in historic downtown Franklin, Indiana and a retail complex in Greenwood, Indiana.
Originally an electrical engineer at Purdue, Casey has been in the restaurant business since he was 16 years old and owns Oaken Barrel in Greenwood. In 1993 while managing the fine dining restaurant Broad Ripple Steakhouse, Casey and longtime friend, Bill Fulton, began discussing the possibility of opening a brewery in Greenwood.
The Garment Factory Events center is the second project between the Bemis brothers and Casey. Bemis Group has purchased and is renovating the retail center in Greenwood which houses Oaken Barrel.
