LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 30, 2012) – CafePress Inc. will move its global headquarters to Louisville, where it already has a 140,000-square-foot fulfillment center on Riverport Drive.
The company plans to expand its existing operation by another 185,000 s.f. to accommodate the growth, which will create 592 new full-time jobs as well as an investment of more than $16.5 million.
“Kentucky continues to prove it is an ideal location for corporate headquarters, and this project is yet another great illustration of our success,” said Gov. Steve Beshear, who called
CafePress an exciting company that has enjoyed tremendous success because of its innovative business model and product line.
“Now Kentucky’s vibrant workforce and optimal location should only help that success to continue to grow,” he said.
Founded in 1999, CafePress Inc. allows individuals, groups, businesses and organizations to create, buy and sell customized and personalized products using the company’s print-on-demand services and e-commerce platform. CafePress Inc. owns a portfolio of six brands including its flagship website, CafePress.com.
“Today marks a continued commitment to our relationship with the great state of Kentucky as we bring our global headquarters to Louisville and cement the path to new jobs,” said CafePress CEO Bob Marino. “And, this move makes CafePress Inc. the first publicly traded e-commerce company to be headquartered in the Commonwealth.”
The company was preliminarily approved for tax incentives of up to $10 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
