To hear Grier Allen tell it, BoomTown’s first office in the old Faber House on East Bay Street had rats.
Now several years on, the CEO’s workspace has a cinder block and glass brick wall and was once the seafood section of the former Jaber’s Market on Rutledge Avenue.
Moving a little over a mile in seven years, from live rodents to fish souls, might not scream success.
But Allen likes where he and his real estate software firm are. That’s because BoomTown has been covering ground in other ways. You might even say business is booming.
