One of the largest suburban office relocations of the year, Wilton Brands was a complex consolidation of four separate facilities into one location, which will provide the firm with enhanced office space and an elevated image in the market. After a detailed assessment of the company's current employee base, it was determined that Naperville offered the greatest convenience and right economics for Wilton. With the deal, the firm built out a new state-of the-art test kitchen for its products and made substantial space improvements with branded offices that will position the firm for strong recruitment and retention for years to come.
