AUSTIN Texas – April 5, 2011: PetRelocation.com today announced its expansion plans to include the recent purchase of a 9,500 square-foot office building at 612 Brazos, located on the corner of 7th and Brazos in downtown Austin.
PetRelocation.com, a privately-owned company that provides door-to-door pet transportation services for individuals relocating with their pets, has grown over 600% since 2005 and plans to double its workforce in the next two years. The company, which has been self-funded and bootstrapped from its inception, owns its current 4500 square-foot office location off of Highway 71 west of Bee Caves.
“Our company’s success has been fueled by smart investments in the company and its employees,” said Kevin O’Brien, CEO of PetRelocation.com. “By purchasing a building on one of the busiest corners in Austin, we’re solidifying our position as one of Austin’s fastest-growing companies as well as one of its best places to work.”
The building, which was the original Austin American-Statesman office, most recently was the IFC Crossroads House during South By Southwest. PetRelocation.com co-founders, Kevin and Angie O’Brien, closed on the property on Friday, April 1 and renovation of the building is expected to begin this week, with a target move-in date of early July.
