Last March, Walk-On’s moved its corporate office from downtown to be a little closer to home: right across the parking lot from its original restaurant location.
Taking over the 27,000-square-feet space that was once the Co-op Bookstore on Burbank Drive, the team made the building the ultimate illustration of their central message: Work hard, play harder. Incorporating an open workspace and features meant to keep the staff of nearly 40 employees active, it reflects the restaurant’s signature camaraderie fused with competitiveness.
“We don’t take ourselves too seriously … we work hard, but we also realize it’s all about the culture. We want to have a fun-filled, kind of light-work-out atmosphere where we can still get a lot of work done,” says Jeanne Hunt, Walk-On’s franchise compliance and integration manager.
