DALLAS — Saying its "growth has exceeded its current workspace," Dean Foods Co. on Tuesday said it will move its corporate office to approximately 240,000 square feet of leased space in Cityplace in Dallas. Currently located at 2515 McKinney Avenue in the Uptown section of Dallas, Dean Foods plans to move its headquarters’ location in the first quarter of 2010. Cityplace is located less than two miles north of downtown Dallas.
"We are pleased to be able to relocate our offices within Dallas city limits, said Gregg Engles, chairman and chief executive officer of Dean Foods. "Many factors worked in our favor, including the real estate market, space availability and other economic elements. The city of Dallas is our home, and we are pleased to remain here and continue our many civic and community partnerships."
Since the company’s inception in 1993 it has grown to 26,000 employees in more than 100 locations across the United States. As a result, the company’s growth has exceeded its current workspace.
"This is a very positive step in our company’s journey that demonstrates our stability, permanence and growth," Mr. Engles said. "I’m proud of our employees who have worked hard to create continued business opportunities and success for our company."
