Makers of Texas Pete moving headquarters to downtown Winston-Salem
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — TW Garner Food Co. is returning to downtown Winston-Salem after about seven decades, hoping to strike a balance between staying true to its private corporate roots while staking out a bolder community presence, according to The Winston-Salem Journal.
The company, a corporate mainstay for 86 years, has signed a 12-year lease with Nash Building LLC for the 14,500-square-foot second floor of the Nash-Bolich building off Fourth Street.
It expects to shift headquarters operations and 26 employees to the site in early 2016. The company will keep production at its 4045 Indiana Ave. facility, where it has 65 employees.
The move represents the Garner family’s recognition and appreciation of the downtown revitalization effort, as well as a desire to add their infusion of innovation and creativity that goes hand in hand with making Texas Pete Hot Sauce – the country’s No. 3 hot-sauce brand.
