Agreement with First Security Bancorp to Lease New 50,000 Square Foot Office Facility
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 6, 2023-- Westrock Coffee Company (Nasdaq: WEST) (“Westrock Coffee,” or the "Company”), a leading integrated coffee, tea, flavors, extracts, and ingredients solutions provider to the retail, foodservice and restaurant, convenience store and travel center, non-commercial, CPG, and hospitality industries, announced today the company has moved its headquarters to a new 50,000 square foot office, located at 4009 N. Rodney Parham Rd. Building 3, Little Rock, Arkansas 72212. Westrock will occupy the 3rd and 4th floors.
