After an exhaustive search, in 2011 Jerry came across the former Coca Cola Bottling plant on that same 5th street where it all began. Even though the building needed a lot of TLC, it's location in the heart of downtown Panama City and offering the right amount of space to grow, as well as a price he could live with, Jerry took his successful business on the biggest journey of it's 15 year history. Working side by side with the extraordinary assistance from the City of Panama City, The Downtown CRA, the Bay County Chamber of Commerce and Prosperity Bank, as well as others, Jerry came up with the plan to renovate and restore the building to it's former glory.
Beginning in the Fall of 2011 and utilizing a team of Master craftsmen the entire building was stripped of paint and years of neglect. Finally, in February of 2012, he brought his company and it's 20 employees to the lovingly restored 16,000 square foot facility still called home today.
