Specialty Retail Chain Plans HQ Move to Dallas
Specialty retail chain Buff City Soap is moving its headquarters from Memphis to the Dallas area to take advantage of the city’s centralized location as it aspires to grow into a billion-dollar business, the Dallas Morning News reported.
The company has not publicly specified where it will locate its headquarters or the timing of the move, according to Memphis’ Commercial Appeal.
The private equity-backed company consists of physical stores it calls “Makeries,” where customers can shop and observe employees creating the company’s plant-based soaps by hand. Buff City Soap has 35 locations in 11 states, including two in North Texas.
Brad Kellum, Buff City chief executive, told the Memphis Business Journal that the move to the Dallas area was primarily influenced by its central location in the U.S., which would make logistics for its online business easier. Also, the company’s private equity backers, Guideboat Capital and Crux Capital, are in Dallas.
