Funko to create ‘pop-culture hub’ in new headquarters expansion

Leading collectible toy firm, Funko, will be moving to a new 90,000 square foot office space located at 2802 Wetmore Avenue in Everett, Washington.

The space will ultimately accommodate 300 employees and will feature a 6,000 square foot flagship store for visitors to shop the expansive collection of licensed products, including Funko Pop! Vinyls, Dorbz, Plush and more.

The company has revealed that it intends to create a pop-culture hub in Everett for Funko fans, hosting events to celebrate in conjunction with major pop culture events in the area.

“As we continue to grow our business and expand in existing and new product categories, we needed an office setting that not only supports our future growth but creates a unique and fun atmosphere that inspires both our dedicated team members and loyal Funko fans,” said Brian Mariotti, President and CEO of Funko. 

“We are excited to return to downtown Everett where Funko was founded 19 years ago and create a space that reflects the innovative and stylized Funko brand that is driven by our team of artists, sculptors, and production staff who live and breathe the pop culture lifestyle.”
