The company’s spokesperson, Sarah Kittel, said it has not finalized a lease with any locations, yet remained impressed by the future vision for the Old Main Post Office – a long vacant building that recently signed Walgreens as its first tenant.
“We believe it would reflect the brand, culture and community we’re building for the next chapter at Ferrara,” she said. “We appreciate the support from the City of Chicago and Mayor Emanuel as we prepare for our move to the city.
“Our focus is on finding the best possible office space to accommodate our continued growth, while providing a great work experience for our employees.”
Ferrara, which also manufactures gummy brands including Trolli and Black Forest, is now the third largest confectioner in the US after Mars and Hershey, according to Euromonitor.
