Since the day Tallgrass opened its doors in 2012, our roots have been planted with growth in mind. From our first days in a Kansas farmhouse to building an innovative company culture and launching ground-breaking freight technology, we’re proud of our intentional, exponential growth year after year. Today, we’re excited to share our latest advancement: The Tallgrass Freight Co. team has opened a second Kansas City area office, in the 7101 Tower in the suburb of Overland Park, Kansas.
Located just 20 minutes southeast of our flagship Kansas City office, our Overland Park location signifies just one of the many recent milestones we’ve achieved and serves as the result of our hard work and commitment to be the best. Needing some extra elbow room is a great problem to have!
We’re thrilled that our Operations and Finance teams call our new space home. Our flagship office continues to be the hub for our outstanding independent freight agents.
“Ultimately, the new office is an exciting sign of our growth,” says David Barnes, COO and Co-Owner. “It’s an iconic location, and we couldn’t be happier to be here.” While recent seasons have marked strong expansion, our growth is nothing new: 2021 was the fifth year in a row of ranking on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list! (So yeah, you could say we’ve been hustling over here.)
Known as the “Darth Vader Building” due to its dark exterior, our new digs are located in an iconic 16-story luxury office high-rise. The 7101 Tower has both stunning features and an ideal location.
“The location is great, and the building is iconic,” David continues. Located on the Southwest corner of College Boulevard and Metcalf, the building boasts beautiful external light displays and a large water spout fountain at the entrance. Tallgrass team members have convenient access to a first-floor cafe and a parking garage. Each Tallgrass professional has their own office with stunning views of the metro. The office is just minutes from the shops and restaurants of Town Center, as well as key highway interchanges.
“Our goal of maintaining our unparalleled company culture and providing the best resources for our team has helped us get to where we are today,” says Damon Anderson, Founder and CEO. “Our new location is just another result of our top-notch team at Tallgrass. We owe it all to them, who work and hustle every single day to be the best.”
The opening of our new office is the latest in a sequence of achievements, including earning a spot on the 2021 Inc. 5000: America’s Fastest Growing Companies, the Kansas City Business Journal’s “Fast 50,” the Kansas City Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, the 2021 Ingram’s Top Private Companies and Inc. 5000 Regionals: America’s Top Businesses in the Midwest.
Now, we love collecting the bling, of course. But it all points to something much bigger: our extraordinary freight agents. The foundation of Tallgrass Freight is built on our team — and we are dedicated to investing in our people. We work hard, play hard and have created an environment where people look forward to being part of this team each day.
