  • Chip and Joanna Gaines are moving into their new headquarters
  • Staff is moving in this week
  • They remodeled the old Waco Tribune-Herald building

Once again Chip and Joanna Gaines and their company, Magnolia, have outgrown their operational headquarters. It would almost seem that they are singlehandedly financially propping up the entire town of Waco, Texas with their ever-growing empire.

This has been about two years in the making according to the Waco Tribune. Yes, the very same publication that used to be housed in the 110K square foot building.

They spent over $20 million to convert the massive space into their new headquarters. Of that $20 million, $4.48 million came from local, city, and state government funds.

Not only will the building house all of its office and conference rooms, but will also house their proprietary coffee shop. Just like every company, they run on coffee. Magnolia Press Coffee will be there in the mezzanine area.

Good news for visitors, it's only about a 3-minute drive from the Magnolia Market in the Silos shopping district. They will also have several charging stations, so you can top off your electric vehicle.

This will keep people working in downtown Waco, and help prop up other businesses that depend on that traffic to stay open. The Waco Tribune building housed the newspaper for over 70 years. With it being so big, this might have been the only way it would have been repurposed.

Chip and Joanna love a big challenge, and they love Waco. This is right in line with their core values, just like when they fixed up the massive Cottonland Castle.
