Mint Julep Tours Announces Office Relocation, expansion
Louisville, KY – – Mint Julep Tours, a local business that is a recognized leader in tours, transportation, and special events throughout Kentucky, is excited to announce it will be moving its offices and vehicle garage to a new larger property located at 1631 Mellwood Ave.
Eyedia, a local furniture and home décor consignment store, previously occupied the space. In addition to the 7,000 square ft. building, Mint Julep Tours will also be constructing a new garage on the property to house its rapidly expanding fleet of buses and vehicles.
According to Mint Julep Tours co-founder and owner, Sean Higgins, (hear his March 2015 Rusty Satellite interview here) the move was necessary due to the significant growth the company has seen since its inception. “As the bourbon and tourism industries in Kentucky have grown, so have we. It was time that we made a move that allowed us to continue to expand and grow. We’re extremely excited about this new space and can’t wait for the opportunities that will come along with it.”
The new location sits near the intersection of Mellwood and Frankfort Ave., right off the I-64 exit ramp and directly across from Apocalypse Brewery. Higgins said the new location is exactly what MJTG was seeking.
“We’re thrilled to have been able to find a location that both serves our needs as a business and also keeps us close to the downtown core. There is so much going on in that area and along Frankfort Ave., which makes this move all that much more exciting.”
Mint Julep Tours secured a Louisville Metropolitan Business Development Corp., (METCO) loan to assist in the expansion costs. These loans are focused on small businesses in the Louisville economy. WorK Architecture + Design is the lead design firm that will handle the project. The new space is projected to be complete by Spring-2016.
Note: Tours will continue to depart from the Mint Julep Tours Gift Shop, which is located in the Galt House Hotel (Third Floor Rivue Tower), 140 N. Fourth St., Louisville, Ky 40202.
