A little Jelli in the middle

A few months ago we wrote about Jelli’s upcoming expansion into Boise, and the new positions they were looking to fill. Then, more recently, our friends over at Boise Dev shared that Jelli would be moving into the then-vacant first floor space in the Drake Cooper building.

And now, they’ve made it official.

On Wednesday, June 7th, Jelli held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at their new office, according to the Idaho Business Review.

With Drake Cooper occupying the floors directly above and below them, we’ll let you fill in the blanks on the sandwich-related jokes.

Congratulations to Jelli on the expansion, and welcome to Boise.
