Spice giant McCormick is considering 4 states for its new HQ

Reporter- Baltimore Business Journal
Spice giant McCormick & Co. Inc. has opened its headquarters search up to the entire mid-Atlantic, including Northern Virginia.

Sparks, Maryland-based McCormick — maker of iconic products such as Old Bay Seasoning — is considering sites of between 300,000 and 350,000 square feet in Maryland, Delaware and southern Pennsylvania, along with Northern Virginia, according to real estate documents obtained by the Baltimore Business Journal. The search area is well beyond the scope of options CEO Alan D. Wilson discussed in March.

Although there has long been talk that McCormick would consider moving to southern Pennsylvania, the possibility of a Northern Virginia move is new.

McCormick, a spice company with $4 billion in revenue, is one of the largest employers in Baltimore County. It employs between 600 and 700 workers spread across four buildings in Sparks and Hunt Valley, Maryland, north of Baltimore City. The company wants to move into a new headquarters by April 2018.
