BIGFOOT 4X4 is relocating its headquarters from Hazelwood, MO—a St. Louis suburb—to Pacific, MO about 35 miles southwest of its current home.

BIGFOOT officials plan to close on the purchase of the new property and the sale of the old one in August. BIGFOOT will then have four months to complete the move, the company said.

“Plans to move have been in the works for a while, but finally came to a head about two months ago when the Pacific property was stumbled across. The Hazelwood property hasn’t really fit for quite a while now,” according to BIGFOOT’s official announcement on the company’s website. “The four-wheel-drive parts and service business were closed years ago. As a full-time BIGFOOT monster truck operation, more truck and tractor-trailer space, less office space, and space to expand was needed. The new property gives us all of that. Everyone here is very excited! Since BIGFOOT has been in the Hazelwood building for 31 years, there is a LOT of stuff to sort through and move.”

BIGFOOT was founded by Bob and Marilyn Chandler in 1974. Today, the company is managed by Ann and Bob Trent, the Chandler’s daughter and son-in-law.

According to The Missourian, BIGFOOT will eliminate its retail business and focus exclusively on monster truck appearances.

The current BIGFOOT fleet features 10 monster trucks, used for races, car-crushing exhibitions, and display at special events.

The 20-employee firm will have engine and chassis repair shops, paint booths, and offices at the new facility in Pacific.

This building will serve as BIGFOOT's new corporate headquarters in Pacific, MO.
