The Wonder Building is the historic Wonder Bread Bakery and home of the Wonder Market® – an artisan food hall highlighting unique regional chefs and coffee roasters.

Rover, the Seattle-based dogsitting and walking startup, moved into Spokane’s Wonder Building Wednesday.

The company, which has 600 employees worldwide, moved its 86 local workers to the new location on the top floor of the recently refurbished bread factory on Broadway Avenue, which recently underwent a $15 million renovation.

Jennifer Summers, director of operations for the company, said Rover has room to expand to 300 employees in the building.
