"The departure of the Kraft Heinz Oscar Mayer plant from Madison’s Northside leaves an unquestionable gap not only in the neighborhood’s landscape, but in its culture. Oscar Mayer helped to literally put the Northside on the map, creating the factory family neighborhoods that surround it as the company developed over the years.
