We’ve Moved! Meet the New Apptoto HQ

A lot has been happening in the past few months that we’d love to share with you, our valued customers.

New Location

We’re excited to be in a brand-new space in beautiful downtown Bend. It’s within walking distance of Drake Park and right in the heart of the action, including First Friday Art Walks, parades, and the hustle and bustle of every day. We’re on the second floor on a prime corner, so we may get caught people-watching once in a while!

There are so many great coffee and lunch spots downtown, it’s hard to choose. It’s also great that we can also get together outside the office for the occasional company Happy Hour or team-building event. We’re planning on doing an escape room together soon!

This new office is dog friendly, so Toto is enjoying some familiar company. We love having these pooches around to help us get our work done.

Our office duck/beaver battles continue to rage on, as with many offices in Oregon, but we have a fun, relaxed group, so it is always enjoyable.

Our office manager, Rachael, does a great job of keeping snacks, tea, coffee, and Coke Zero (Jessica’s personal favorite) on hand — always appreciated in the afternoons.

Open House

To celebrate our new location, we had an open house this summer during one of the First Friday Art Walks. It was great having colleagues and friends come together in our new space and spend some time exploring downtown afterward with all the food, music, and creativity.

Our founder, Frank, had some special guests, including a former employer who gave him his first local job at 17 years old in software engineering.

Arcade

Something that instantly stands out in our office is our vintage “Star Wars” arcade game, a Christmas present to Frank when he was 12 years old. In fact, he still holds all the top scores!

Many have tried to top him, but so far, no luck. Feel free to drop by and try to challenge him if you are in the neighborhood!
