The new Spud building was built in 2015 and we moved in shortly after leaving the building just next door that we called “the barn”. The old building was 4000 square feet and was outgrown with over 200 local clients and over 50 employees. Derek Sommer and his team have worked hard to make Spud what it is today. Spud Software is honored and ecstatic to be recognized in the New Building Award and shares the commitment to locality and community. Here is a closer look at the award.

Our story of growth to a state-of-the-art facility has been one that includes 20+ years of bonding with our core values of being resourceful, honest, dedicated and passionate. We love our new building!
