The Pajama Factory started out in the 1880s, as a rubber company. Later on, hundreds worked here making Keds sneakers. In the 1930s, the Weldons Pajama Company moved in. The eight-building complex would grow to become the largest pajama factory in the world.
A set is on display inside Todd Foresman’s Coffee shop on the ground floor, where he takes pride in his work. “When you are cooking for people that you care about, you make a better meal. It’s the same with the coffee. I really love what I do. I really do believe I have the best coffee in the state,” said Todd Foresman, Owner, Way Cool Beans Coffee Shop
Todd’s landlord is property owner Mark Winkelman, an architect from New York. He’s renovating the Pajama Factory and turned part of the building into his home away from home. “We’ve owned it for twelve years. It’s been a continuous renovation effort. And we will continue for many more years. I like the slow growth, the organic growth aspect of that,” said Mark Winkelman, Owner of the Pajama Factory.
