CuliNex, LLC, Seattle, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the former Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Tukwila, WA. The company relocated to the facility at the beginning of August.

The two-story building is approximately 20,000 square feet in size, with 10,000 square feet on each of two floors. Inside, five commercial kitchens are fully equipped for either baking or savory R&D. In addition, the building includes an analytical lab, a library, classrooms and office space. The building is located within a 220,000-square-foot, 11-building corporate campus, two miles east of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

“We’ve been waiting a long time to have a place we could call our own,” said Mark Crowell, founder and principal culinologist. “This is a world-class facility.”

CuliNex has grown rapidly during the last 2 two years and ran out of space at their old test kitchen in the SoDo district of Seattle about 6 months ago.

“The new facilities will allow us to continue growing our R&D practice, as well as expand our service offerings,” said Crowell.
