Through the better part of January and February, the Field Roast office was dismantled, packed up and moved to the upper story of our production plant. Our production plant, as you may know, was originally a single-family home built in the first part of the 20th century. We remodeled the upper story to house our swanky new office, a test kitchen, and a new breakroom – and we built in a sophisticated loft style apartment next door.
Renovations were a long grueling process! We had to refinish wood floors, patch holes, paint the walls, and install heating. Malcolm Lee headed the project with a host of workers under his lead. It was somewhat of a family affair: everyone chipped in to create the vision and do the work. I myself put my “engineer” hat on and put together all of the new aerodynamic IKEA furniture.
The whole Field Roast family – cooks, labelers, and our office staff – now enjoy a full kitchen and sunroom for breaks and lunches. We have a new seating area for waiting customers and associates, and expanded storage for ingredients, and office supplies. David has created a secluded office space upstairs where he can work undisturbed, and is loving it, though the heat during the summer may change his mind. (he has put in a request for an air conditioner.)
