Soup Works owners buy building in Niwot
Last Updated: 15:40 October 7, 2013
Boulder Soup Works founder Kate Brown said the company is planning a move from 2510 47th St. in Boulder, where it has a little less than 10,000 square feet. The timeline for the move is still to be determined.
Boulder Soup Works manufactures and distributes organic soups from its Boulder headquarters, and Brown said all aspects of the business will move to the new 22,160-square-foot space. The company has 21 employees, a number Brown said will increase as Boulder Soup Works expands its capacity with the move.
"Business is growing," Brown said.
The 6363 Horizon property is an office and industrial building located on two acres in the business park northeast of the intersection of Colorado Highways 52 and 119. Brokers Jim Bolt and Tyler Carner of CBRE represented the seller in the transaction while the buyers were represented internally.
Community Food Share paid $4.1 million for a building in the Colorado Tech Center in Louisville last year, and the food bank completed its move to the new, larger space in August.
The 6363 Horizon Lane building had been on the market for about 18 months.
"It helped us when (Community Food Share) closed on the building they were moving to so buyers knew they were going to move for sure," Bolt said.
Brown said the idea for buying the building stemmed from a lunch with Community Food Share chief executive Jim Baldwin where the two were swapping notes on their organizations after they met at a fundraiser in the spring.
Boulder Soup Works has long been a supporter of Community Food Share, routinely donating soup to the food bank.
"They're a really great organization," Brown said. "We just love to support them."
