Seattle-based action sports and outdoor retailer evo announced that it is relocating its current headquarters to a new location at the Cedar Speedster building at 401 North 36th Street in Fremont this fall.
In line with evo’s community-minded ethos, the new address is designed to be a gathering place, encompassing two restaurants and a brewery. (evo retail stores will remain nearby at the Fremont Collective, 3500 Stone Way North.) Eateries include Revel, a Korean street-food establishment, which will move from its current home in South Lake to a deck-clad corner of the Cedar Speedster building; Aslan, a certified organic brewery based in Bellingham, and Local Tide Seattle, a new seafood restaurant.
“We’ve outgrown our current headquarters, and the new space in Fremont will better speak to evo’s founding pillar of building community,” said Bryce Phillips, evo’s founder. “Customers will be able to enjoy a meal with friends and family while visiting an evo property—invitation is a core value of ours.”
As part of the move, evo will also move its warehouse to a new location with triple the number of truck-height bay doors, increasing its inbound and outbound capacity. The volume of the interior will also be greater. The building itself is a timber-framed structure—a modern design that pays homage to the Northwest’s logging industry.
“The move will ultimately enable us to better serve our customers,” Phillips said. “We’re proud of where we’ve come from, and excited about where we’re going. Change is what ‘evolucion’ is all about.”
