“Given the recent growth of our operations, we see an expanded headquarters as a continued commitment to our valuable team members,” said Ryan Essenburg, President and CIO of Tommy’s. “We also anticipate an upgraded space as a means to broaden our impact, and we thank and appreciate EV Construction for their role in helping us reach this goal.”

Interactive Studios of Grand Rapids is the project lead designer and architect. Concepts for the new facility were developed by Tommy’s over several years of planning and studying the needs of their growing business. The building will feature a large warehouse, fabrication, and logistics center, two stories of modern office space, and ample room for events and employee collaboration with venders and customers. The focal point of the building is a two-story, round office that will feature training and technical support areas for Tommy’ Express franchise partners. The project's exterior design will also feature architectural inspiration from the iconic Tommy’s Express Car Washes, which are being built across the United States.
