Frederick, MD (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
In just 4 years, Go Ape has built over 6 Treetop Adventure courses in the United States. With expansive growth and an enticing business model, Go Ape is partnering with parks across the country seeking to increase visitors while bringing new jobs and tax revenue to their area. Frederick, MD is a prime location for Go Ape’s new head office. It is centrally located to many of Go Ape’s existing courses, including its first in Rockville, MD, as well as courses in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Indiana, and Missouri. Frederick also has the environment to suit an expanding business with a taste for adventure.
Frederick offers the right mix of culture, landscape, office space, and access to the eastern corridor to accommodate a fast growing company. Go Ape has now moved to an office in The Glass Factory, at 241 East Fourth Street, Suite 105, Frederick, Maryland 21701 to provide its staff room to grow and to work collaboratively.
Go Ape partners with parks departments across the country to build and operate Treetop Adventure courses. Go Ape provides the capital to build and operate the course. In exchange for use of the land, Go Ape offers a significant revenue share with the landowners while also creating an exciting draw to the park, bringing in over 90% new visitors.
In addition to being a rapidly growing business, Go Ape has a strong philanthropic arm that helps contribute to the economic, social and environmental goals of our park partners and the communities they serve. At all locations, Go Ape engages with the community to manage non-native invasive species, participate in and encourage volunteer work, organize park fundraisers and create partnerships with area non-profits to involve the underserved and special needs communities.
The company’s growth has created over 100 new jobs since 2010. Go Ape looks forward to joining the Frederick business community and to bring new jobs and adventures to a unique city.
“We are pleased that Go Ape has decided to relocate their headquarters to Frederick County and realize they could have chosen any place better to call home. We welcome their unique business to our diverse business community," said Helen Propheter, Manager of the Frederick County Business Development and Retention Department whose office worked with Go Ape during their relocation process.
