EBTH Commits to Local Job Creation in Thriving Pre-owned Goods Market
CINCINNATI, January 25, 2021 – Everything But the House (EBTH), a full-service consignment and e-commerce marketplace for pre-owned goods announced its commitment to create more than 800 new jobs in Ohio by the end of 2025. The City of Blue Ash council members believe that EBTH’s investment in job creation will support the local economy as founders Brian Graves and Jacquie Denny continue to grow the company as a leader in the secondhand market.
Job creation will be focused within the city of Blue Ash and is projected to add over $40,000,000 in payroll over the next five years. The company’s focused expansion is being assisted by its partnership with REDI Cincinnati and incentives from JobsOhio, the City of Blue Ash, and the Ohio Development Services Agency.
“The team at EBTH is excited to be partnering with our home city of Blue Ash, the State of Ohio, and JobsOhio to propel EBTH forward on this new path of growth. Jacquie and I are extremely passionate about continuing to carry on the legacy of pre-owned goods that benefits both our community and environment” said Brian Graves, Founder & President, EBTH.
Since Brian and Jacquie’s return as owners in the last year, EBTH has processed more than 280,000 items and delivered them to a growing audience of shoppers worldwide. Currently, EBTH has 307 employees across two Ohio warehouses — their headquarters based in Blue Ash, Ohio at 217,000 sq ft and a secondary 24,000-square-foot facility outside of Columbus — where team members research, authenticate, photograph, and curate items listed for sale on EBTH.com. It is the company’s Uncommon Promise that every item listed is authenticated or validated, presented clearly and accurately, and is handled with utmost care.
“The Cincinnati region has been recognized as a top up-and-coming tech market and EBTH’s story shows that the Cincinnati region is a place where startups do grow and thrive,” said Kimm Lauterbach, REDI Cincinnati president and CEO. “JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati are confident the e-commerce space will build on the record growth in 2020, and EBTH is poised to benefit thanks to its investment in Blue Ash.”
New hires will fuel initiatives to grow the company’s national footprint through logistics, fulfillment, item processing, technology, and their growing sales and marketing departments. Together, these roles support EBTH’s commitment to giving items a new life and sharing the beauty of Everything Uncommon, one auction at a time.
“The City of Blue Ash is excited to partner with Everything But The House for this major expansion of their headquarters,” said Neil Hensley, economic development director for the City of Blue Ash. “We are grateful for their commitment to create more than 800 new jobs in our community and look forward to working closely with them as they expand in Blue Ash.”
