Dole Food is Building its Corporate Presence in Charlotte

Dole Food Company is moving top executives to Charlotte, but hasn’t made the city its corporate headquarters, a company spokesman said Monday.

A recent construction permit filed for 200 S. Tryon, however, hints that’s a possibility. It indicates “Dole Headquarters” as the name for the project. Dole, a privately held company, is based in Westlake Village, Calif., and is one of the world’s largest producer of fruits and vegetables.

Asked whether Dole is moving its corporate headquarters to uptown, spokesman William Goldfield said via text Monday that “nothing is currently planned.”
