Online Custom Cabinet Company Selects St. Louis
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 8, 2018 - CliqStudios, the nation's largest online retailer of semi-custom kitchen cabinets based on revenue, will invest $1.95 million to locate a new cabinet design center in Missouri. The company's expansion is expected to create 98 new high-wage jobs in the St. Louis area.
The Minnetonka, Minn.-based company will open its new design center in St. Louis County in order to accommodate its quickly growing customer base. CliqStudios cited Missouri's workforce, labor cost, available real estate, overall cost and incentives as key reasons Missouri was selected. The company is currently working through the lease on its new St. Louis location.
Founded in 2010, CliqStudios is changing how consumers remodel their homes by selling cabinets factory direct nationwide through its website, CliqStudios.com. CliqStudios.com is America's largest kitchen design studio and the leading online seller of semi-custom kitchen cabinets. According to the company, by buying direct consumers earn significant savings on their cabinets while still receiving products specifically designed for their space.
"The St. Louis Regional Chamber is excited CliqStudios chose St. Louis as a new location for their back office operations," Joe Reagan, CEO of the St. Louis Regional Chamber, said. "This is further evidence that our talented workforce is attractive to companies looking to grow their business."
To assist with CliqStudios' entry into Missouri, the Missouri Department of Economic Development offered a strategic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation criteria.

Missouri Hits Record Employment
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 26, 2016 - A new report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed Missouri's net gain of 57,100 jobs over the last year led all eight of its neighboring states; the Show Me State also ranked in the top ten nationwide in new jobs. The same data showed Missouri was tied for the largest statistically significant decrease in the nation in the unemployment rate in November.
In a release, Governor Jay Nixon said, "On my very first day in office, I pledged to turn Missouri's economy around and create good jobs for working families across our state. Over the last eight years, we've cut our unemployment rate in half, revitalized our manufacturing industry and made Missouri an internationally-recognized center of high-tech innovation and entrepreneurship. This report showing Missouri leading the region in job growth is more proof that hard work pays off. By balancing budgets and making smart investments in our students and workers, we've positioned Missouri to compete and win in the global economy."
The BLS report also showed Missouri's nonfarm payroll employment grew by 1,900 jobs in November, reaching a new record high for the state with 2,842,200 jobs. The state's unemployment rate for November also went down by four-tenths of a point to 4.7 percent.
In August, Missouri was named the 6th best state in the nation for its annual advanced manufacturing industry job growth in a new report from the Brookings Institution. The same report also found that Missouri is the 8th best state in the nation for output growth of its advanced manufacturing industry.
