Did someone say, “Work from beach day?” Known for its rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, sunny beaches and hospitable people, Charleston makes the perfect fit for Palmetto HQ!
The name originated with CEO, Chris Kemper while working in London in 2009. Then fate happened when choosing headquarters in South Carolina, The Palmetto State. How coincidental is that, right?
Located a mile north of the historic district of Charleston, Palmetto HQ is located in the newly developed Pacific Box and Crate. Home to numerous tech companies, a brewery, dog park, and an amazing exploratory food court with emerging chefs. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere!
