Funko, the toymaker behind the bestselling Pop! vinyl figurines, is relocating to a new 90,000-square-foot office to accommodate its continued growth, as well as pop-culture events.
The new Everett, Washington office will be renovated to fit 300 employees, and will also include a 6,000-square-foot flagship store that will have interactive experiences for customers. The space is aiming to be the cultural hub for Everett.
Funko has grown rapidly over the past five years, especially since the Pop! figurines have become more mainstream with the introduction of several new licenses and new digital shorts (pictured) in collaboration with Marvel.
Recently, Funko released Pop! figurines for Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Warner Brother’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Its products have moved from novelty shops to mass-market retail stores like Walmart and Toys “R” Us, enabling the rapid expansion.
Funko’s other products include action figurines, Dorbz, plush, apparel, mystery vinyl and home accessories, all of which incorporate its large category of licenses.
