Popular Connecticut Company Moves Headquarters, 100+ Jobs Lost
Edible Arrangements has announced that they’re pulling up the stakes of their corporate headquarters which is currently located in Wallingford, Connecticut, according to NBC Connecticut TV News. The move will be made by the end of this year.
The company says that they will keep a very small scaled down office located in Wallingford, that will continue to utilize 20 or so workers on the staff, which will be paired down from the 130 people it currently employs there.
Back in March, the Atlanta office was opened for business to prepare for the move. Some employees will get severance packages, and some will be transferred to the Atlanta area from here. Edible Arrangements creates gift items made from fruit, and delivers them to recipients.
The company stated that Atlanta being a more central location for transportation will help the company in it's future endeavors as they look into further growth.
