California Dreaming Series – Part 6: And We’re Back!
We’ve been busy since our last update and we are currently very close to moving into our new South San Francisco warehouse. Along with working on the actual building we have been building out our California operations team. There have been several weeks of interviews and we’ve found some great people in the Bay Area that are really excited to be a part of Full Circle’s mission.
We’ve also had several of our new Bay Area hires up to our Kent, Washington, warehouse to train with our amazing Puget Sound team! It’s been a great experience and everyone is excited to get started. Just a few more things to wrap up and we’ll start moving our operations in this weekend!
Here are a few of the projects we’ve been working on since our last update –
In order to make our warehouse accessible to all, we’re building out a new wheelchair access ramp into our warehouse.
We had to do pretty extensive upgrades to the electrical system in the warehouse to support our cooler and freezer. Here they are about to connect the wiring.
In the area for our sinks you can see the freshly poured concrete and the tile work going in.
I was able to be on hand to check on progress and meet some of the contractors for a few days. I can’t wait to get back down once everything is moved on to see the first boxes go through.
We’re building out everything to California’s code and regulation standards. here’s one of our electrical contractors double checking the plan details.
Last week the lighting inside the cooler started to go in. It is great to see everything starting to light up!
Once the concrete firmed up, we were able to put our sinks in. Looking good!
We’ve been working night and day to get the office in order as well. Even Rooty made an appearance and helped get some of the office furniture assembled!
These are the final days that we should be seeing ladders and construction equipment in the warehouse. In the coming weeks we will see beautiful produce, artisan groceries, and excited new employees packing orders for our growing customer base in the Bay Area!
