Crocker, a Watsonville High graduate, class of ’62, formed his business with his brother, Richard, and they kicked off their 50-year anniversary at the event Friday.

In the works is a 150,000-square-foot site on five acres, with both single-story and two-story buildings at an abandoned parking lot beside Watsonville Community Hospital.
