Longaberger Basket Headquarters Newark
For 500 lucky employees of Longaberger Basket Co., every day is a picnic. Between 1995 and 1997, the Ohio based company spent $30 million to build a new home office modeled after one of its baskets. According to the companys website, the structure is 160 times longer, wider and taller than its Medium Market Basket. The seven story replica, which sits on 25 acres of land, even features 150 ton handles and two 725 lb. gold leaf painted tags. Not surprisingly, it is considered the worlds largest basket. Recognizing the sightseeing appeal, Longaberger offers tour and vacation packages.
