Celebrated ice cream maker has set up corporate offices in the 401 N. Front St. building
COLUMBUS, OHIO—Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has announced the relocation of their corporate offices from Grandview Heights to the third floor of the Arena District’s 401 N. Front St. building.
Jeni’s now occupies 13,710 square feet of office space just north of Nationwide Boulevard. The nearest Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams scoop shop is one block away in the North Market, adjacent to the Arena District.
“We’ve loved calling our building in Grandview home these past few years,” says Founder and Chief Creative Officer Jeni Britton Bauer. “It was a really comfortable place for us. But change is good—and I love that we’re working so close to the North Market where all of this began. We’ve come full circle.”
Relocating Jeni’s corporate headquarters, says John Lowe, Chief Executive Officer of Jeni’s, is both a practical and a strategic move. “Getting the creative, sales, finance, operations, and shops teams in the same office is going to be a fantastic boost to our team,” says Lowe. “We really wanted to build a collaborative, open environment, with a lot of quiet huddle spaces for the teams to work together. My hat is off to Nationwide Realty Investors and MAC Construction, who delivered in a very short window a great space exactly as Jeni and GRA+D designed.”
