TGC pushes forward as every team shows strong momentum
Growth continues to be a trending topic for us at The Garrett Companies as we push forward with projects and near the end of 2021. The past few months have been filled with activity for every team at The Garrett Co. While it’s been challenging at times, the excitement surrounding our progress continues to drive us forward toward our relentless pursuit of excellence.
We opened our first office in Colorado this September for our Colorado-based team members to call home base and collaborate. The office is in Lone Tree, CO and has the capacity for around 30 employees and a large conference room for meetings. This space is a temporary office while we move forward with our plans to build a larger, permanent Colorado HQ. While we’re expanding westward, have no fret, the Greenwood HQ isn’t going anywhere.
GARRETT RESTAURANT GROUP
I.C. Brewhouse officially opened its second location in Castle Rock and has been a hit amongst their new neighbors. The entire restaurant team has done an incredible job behind the scenes to set themselves up for success, and we’re proud to see the Garrett Restaurant Group grow. In upcoming months, keep an eye out for updates regarding our new coffee shop concept, Runway 19 Coffee Co. The name recognizes the runway of Greenwood Municipal Airport adjacent to the planned location in Greenwood, IN at the Emerson Pointe site, with a second location planned in Thornton, CO at the Grant Row Lofts site.
At this point last year, TGC employed 108 individuals and in 2021 we are now over 150 employees. Within a year our team has grown by 26% and looking to double that number. We are hiring around 40 new employees in the upcoming months, and even more next year. There has never been a better time to take advantage of our $2,500 referral bonus! If you know anyone that would love to join Team Garrett Co., keep an eye out for job opportunities in the upcoming months.
The Garrett Internship Program grew as well this year. Major kudos to Anna Larson for coordinating a successful summer and hosting our biggest class of interns yet with 11 college-aged interns and 9 high-school interns. Growing our internship program helps spread the word about The Garrett Co. and make connections with future full-time team members. We are grateful for all their help and hope to bring more Garrett Intern Alumni onboard in the future.
As we look forward to continuing our Garrett Growth, we want to always remember our humble beginnings. We’ve made major strides since our modest start in 2014, when Eric Garrett founded the company out of a barn in his backyard in Greenwood. Since then, we’ve developed, built and sold 13 projects, improved our systems, started new lines of business, hired the best in the industry, all while consistently winning awards for our culture. As we reflect on our growth, we want to continue to challenge everyone to use our successes to better our team, the neighborhoods in which we work, and the lives of those that choose to call our communities home.
