Chicago, IL – Bradford Allen is pleased to announce that John Skalla and Craig Nadborne have completed a lease transaction on behalf of Home Chef at the Wrigley Building for the company’s new headquarters. Home Chef will be moving into 29,095 square feet from its former headquarters at 225 West Ohio.
Home Chef is a weekly meal delivery service that provides easy recipes with fresh ingredients that allow customers to prepare home-cooked meals in about 30 minutes. Recently the company has experienced significant growth and is shipping nearly 2.5 million meals per month nationwide. In September they received $40 million in Series B capital from L Catterton, the largest consumer-focused private equity firm in the world.
This rapid growth increased the company’s headcount and created the need for additional office space. The company will be occupying the 14th floor of both the North and South Wrigley Towers, which are connected by a sky bridge. The transaction is a sublease between Home Chef and Extreme Reach who were represented by John Ziesmer and Kevin Moore of Avison Young.
“Home Chef, an innovative, home grown Chicago company, was drawn to this space due to its central location in a world-class iconic Chicago landmark building. Additionally, the space was previously built out and furnished to support collaboration and creativity, which aligned well with Home Chef’s needs. This was a perfect combination of factors and it will provide Home Chef with long-term growth potential in a one of a kind office space,” according to Skalla and Nadborne.
