Why patient transport firm RoundTrip moved to the middle of a Philly fire zone

“It was very disruptive for us,” Mark Switaj, CEO of the tech company, said of the fire’s impact on RoundTrip’s move to the 200 block of Chestnut Street last month.

In February, a four-alarm fire destroyed an apartment building at 239 Chestnut and heavily damaged adjoining businesses that remain shuttered, including the Little Lion, Revolution Diner, and...

Three months after the blaze, RoundTrip moved into 2,000 square feet on the fourth floor of 221 Chestnut, seven properties east of the fire scene. No move is ever easy. Its was a test in ultra-flexibility, patience, and a tolerance for bad smells.

    Why patient transport firm RoundTrip moved to the middle of a Philly fire zone
    The time comes in the life of a start-up when it must leave the modest digs where it spent its early, cash-starved years. In the case of Apple-founder Steve Jobs, that was the garage of his childhood home in Los Altos, Calif., though some associates contend that not as much went on there as Hollywood has portrayed.
