Edible Arrangements CEO Mike Rotondo announced plans to relocate the company’s corporate headquarters to Atlanta. Edible will maintain a small office in Wallingford, Connecticut, with about 20 people.
Edible opened an Atlanta office as a “second” headquarters in March 2018 to take advantage of the more centralized location, access to major transportation hubs and other resources for many of the services that were previously handled out of Wallingford, Conn. The company employs approximately 130 workers in Wallingford. The company aims to complete the relocation by the end of 2018.
“We are excited to make Atlanta the brand's home base as we build a best in class Support Center for our franchise owners," says Rotondo. “Edible’s Wallingford, CT office is an important part of the brand’s history and heritage, and we will always have a presence in the community. At the same time, the global marketplace is changing at a rapid pace and Atlanta is an attractive location to base much of the team needed to support the company's next phase of growth.”
The company will issue a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) to the extent it is required by law.
The company’s metro Atlanta office is in the Lakeside Commons buildings in Sandy Springs, GA. The space will serve as the base of operations for the company’s franchise operations.
