Gravity Adds Pet Toy and Treat Company Bark to Forthcoming Office Tenants
Gravity has added dog-centric company Bark to its growing list of pending office tenants. The dog product provider is known for monthly subscription services BarkBox and Super Chewer, as well as social media apps like BarkBuddy, known as the “Tinder for Dogs.”
As one of two Bark offices, Columbus has 300 associates, but the move to Gravity will allow the company to add engineering and creative associates to the office. The company will also advise Gravity on the creation of a forthcoming dog park.
Bark is said to fit in nicely with Gravity’s philosophies of “well-being, impact, and creative expression”:
“We are thrilled to make the move to Gravity to reside amongst a like-minded community of entrepreneurial and creative people — in a space that dogs and their humans will adore,” says Emily Muhl, vice president of people operations at Bark, in a press release. “We’ve had an incredible run in the Short North and couldn’t be more grateful to our friends and partners there. We look forward to building upon these relationships with the Franklinton community as we continue to grow.”
“I’m excited about how passionate the Bark team is about Franklinton and integrating into the immediate area and Columbus as a whole,” says Gravity founder Brett Kaufman. “Bark fully embodies what Gravity should stand for.”
Bark joins other tenants, including Pelotonia, The Roosevelt Coffeehouse, and Cova Cowork, as values-driven businesses set to be a part of Gravity. Tenants, as well as residents, will begin moving into Gravity in spring 2019.
