Pinnacle Foods Group’s newly opened headquarters and research and design center was selected as a winner of Inc. Magazine’s 2012 “World’s Coolest Offices” contest.
Each year, Inc. showcases the “World’s Coolest Offices” on its website Inc.com and discusses what constitutes a “cool office.” This year's contest, hosted on Inc’s Facebook page, received 144 submissions from companies around the world.
“For any company, an office is much more than just four walls, a bunch of desks, some laptops, and an instant-coffee machine,” according to Inc.'s editors. “An office is a recruitment tool, a second home, a place to hang out with friends, a place to be inspired.”
Pinnacle Foods’ Parsippany office was praised by Inc. for its well-lit atrium, which features the company’s logo on the ceiling of the lobby, as well as the building’s warm and inviting central gathering space. “The communal space is full of clean lines and bold geometric shapes. Toward the center of the room, an interior hearth fireplace adds an element of intimacy to this sprawling headquarters," according to Inc., while presenting Pinnacle's award-winning office design.
“We are honored that our new headquarters office was selected as the World’s Coolest Office,” says Bob Gamgort, CEO of Pinnacle Foods Group. “We designed our work environment to foster teamwork and collaboration and to better connect all of us to our brands, consumers and customers.”
Pinnacle Foods Group completed the move to its 399 Jefferson Rd, Parsippany, N.J., location in the spring of 2012. Before the move, the company worked with architectural firm Gensler and Hollister Construction Services to redevelop various facets of the building, including its main entrance, fitting the building to include a full commercial test kitchen and state-of-the-art research and development facilities.
