Local company Southtree.com has expanded to downtown Chattanooga. The company, which preserves home movies and photos digitally, has moved into a new building on Chattanooga's Southside.
Founder Nick Macco says, "We're very excited to be a part of Chattanooga's beautiful downtown, and the revival happening here."
The move comes as Southtree.com more than doubled their business in 2012. "We shipped over 34 tons of orders this past year to families and customers in all 50 states."
When asked how they've handled this growth Mr. Macco describe it as "a little stressful, but exciting." To keep up, they've doubled production, and added evening shifts for their team of 16. "At one point this holiday we were shipping nearly 300 orders each day," said Mr. Macco.
Their new location is on Cowart Street downtown, near Urban Stack. The team will be hosting an open house, Jan. 24 from 6-9 p.m. celebrate. The event will be open to the public and feature drinks and desserts from other local businesses including Easy Bistro, Chattanooga Whiskey Company and The Hot Chocolatier.
