Bob Evans Farms’ Corporate Campus Breaks Ground

Bob Evans Farms broke ground on their New Albany headquarters last week in high style—complete with team of draft horses and a slew of city and state executives. The $35 million corporate office should be open for business in October 2013.

”Bob Evans Farms is a food company and we knew our corporate headquarters needed to reflect that first and foremost,” says Chairman and CEO Steven A. Davis who is also a New Albany resident. “The kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’, so our test kitchens – truly a world-class food innovation center – will be central to the entire campus. Our corporate chefs and, indeed, all our employees will be able to bring farm-fresh inspiration to their work.”

The campus features a “farmstead” layout with orchards, a natural pond and gardens honoring company founders Bob, Dan and Emerson Evans. The heritage and story of the company will be prominently displayed in the main lobby as a permanent exhibit.

“We intend the campus to be an interactive, educational farm experience for employees and visitors,” adds Davis.

Innovate New Albany, the city’s incubator for technology startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, features 16,000 square feet of space within the New Albany Business Park’s Signature Office Building, 8000 Walton Parkway.
