Agape Care Group will relocate its corporate headquarters to the Montgomery Building, bringing 76 employees to downtown Spartanburg beginning in the spring of 2022.
Currently located in Spartanburg County, Agape Care envisioned an office setting that would strengthen its talent attraction and retention efforts. Agape Care considered established urban locations throughout the southeast, including Atlanta Ga., Greenville S.C. and Columbia S.C., but ultimately selected downtown Spartanburg for its emerging urban atmosphere, and the Montgomery Building for its iconic style and prominent location.
“Substantial growth over the last few years has necessitated a larger corporate headquarters,” said Troy Yarborough, CEO, Agape Care Group. “We were drawn to all the downtown Spartanburg area offers and are excited about our ability to recruit and retain top talent with our new offices in the historic Montgomery Building. We are appreciative of the support shown to Agape by the City of Spartanburg and OneSpartanburg, Inc., and look forward to our pending move.”
The company will lease 13,027 sq ft on the second floor of the historic Montgomery Building, which underwent significant restoration before reopening in December 2018. The space will host 33 knowledge-based jobs and 43 skilled clerical positions, some of which will be added over a five-year period to accommodate for growth.
“The decision by Agape Care to bring its headquarters to the Montgomery Building represents a tremendous vote of confidence in the trajectory of Downtown Spartanburg,” said Chris Story, City Manager, City of Spartanburg. “Their investment in our city and the jobs that investment brings will have a ripple effect that reaches throughout our community, adding to Spartanburg’s increasing vibrancy and momentum.”
OneSpartanburg, Inc., and the City of Spartanburg worked together to provide local incentives to Agape Care. Spartanburg is seeing an uptick in interest in downtown office projects, reflective of the organizations’ goal to attract corporations and knowledge-based jobs to Downtown Spartanburg.
