Medifast Eyes New Headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland

Medifast, a leading manufacturer and distributor of clinically proven healthy living products and programs, plans to move its corporate headquarters into a 51,000 sq. ft. facility at Legg Mason Tower in the heart of downtown Baltimore, Maryland.

According to company officials, more than 160 employees will move to the new downtown headquarters, while Medifast's manufacturing facility and related staff will remain at the current Owings Mills, Maryland location. "As Medifast continues to establish itself as a national leader in the health and wellness space, we are excited to join the growing business community in Baltimore City," said Daniel Chard, CEO of Medifast. "We look forward to supporting Baltimore City's wellness and development initiatives by embedding ourselves in the heart of downtown while maintaining operations in the county that has supported us and been our home for the past 37 years."

The company will occupy two floors of the building, with an indoor, open staircase connecting the two floors. The vibrant design will create a connected office and foster a unified culture for the corporate staff and community of Coaches. Other exciting features of the new facility include an open concept work environment overlooking Baltimore's Inner Harbor with multiple outdoor patios as well as several conference rooms, huddle rooms and collaborative work spaces.

"We were committed to finding a contemporary workspace that fostered a collaborative environment for our employees" said Jeanne City, Medifast Executive Vice President of Human Resources. "We are fortunate to have a dedicated, talented and engaged employee base and we look forward to building upon that in our new home in downtown Baltimore."

Medifast plans to begin the transition of its headquarters from Owings Mills to Baltimore City within the next few months, and complete the move by the end of 2017.
