Venice, Florida -- They're crushing the cubicles and creating a place that's probably unlike any office you've ever worked in.

Tuesday is the groundbreaking in Venice for the Tervis Innovation Center.

For generations in Sarasota County, Tervis has made drinkware that keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, but this 24,000 square-foot addition is all about the future.

With open spaces and cutting-edge design, it'll create a wide-open, "work together" atmosphere for the company's marketing and creative design teams.

"We've got pockets of areas where folks sit and they do their jobs, but for the teams that we're moving out here, it's really important that we're focused on teamwork, collaboration, innovation," Tervis CEO Pat Redmond said.

"It's just going to be a whole new way of working for the teams."

Tervis has tripled its staff since just 2010, and they keep hiring more of our neighbors.

A new company store is set to open in the next few weeks on St. Armands Circle in Sarasota.
