ECRS' historic HQ building is nestled between the growing campus of Appalachian State University and the bustling, downtown area of Boone, NC. The unique building has seen many changes since its beginning as the Winkler Ford Dealership in 1942. It has been home to a popular bar and restaurant and an area-favorite, outdoor sporting goods store.
ECRS purchased the building on February 15, 2002 and completely renovated the space while keeping its historical character and original structural components. The upstairs hardwood flooring still shows the oil stains left behind from parked cars when the space served as a showroom for Ford Motors.
Step outside at any given time, and you will find yourself among groups of college students, hurrying to their next class or to the popular coffee shop housed next door in what used to be the tractor shop of the Ford dealership. Simply look up and you will find yourself suddenly departed from the bustling activity of downtown to the tranquility of surrounding mountains. Fridays are made even better as you sit at your desk catching waves of music from the Friday evening Concert on the Lawn held at the nearby Jones House or local musicians who gather on the downtown streets.
We love our headquarters, its rich character, and beautiful Appalachian mountain setting. It's the perfect setting for developing world class, retail automation software.
