Greetings from Fort Worden Hospitality!
This is an exciting time at the Fort. As Spring transitions towards Summer, Fort Worden Hospitality is gaining momentum towards the goal of growth in many areas of our organization.
We have undergone a staff reorganization that is transitioning our leadership team to refocus our efforts on four key areas; Operations, People, Culture, and Community. All departments (teams) are diligently working towards growth in these four areas to support the goals we have as an organization to be a more supportive part of Port Townsend. These teams and their unique focus have allowed us to spend the last several months working on plans to more sustainably serve our guests and open more of our food service outlets.
Coming soon you’ll be able to pop in for drinks at the Guardhouse, head down to the Cablehouse Canteen for a snack, or some forgotten beach/camping items. In addition, we have some great partnerships brewing with a variety of local vendors, including Olympic Kayak for rentals down at the beach.
As Fort Worden Hospitality grows, we are beta testing a few exciting things this summer, including taking a proactive approach by supporting our seasonal staff through on campus housing solutions.
All this combines to bring you our widest set of offerings we’ve had since 2019. I am excited for our staff and the support they’ll have, as well as seeing you around the park enjoying a coffee or beer, a conference or music festival, a walk in the park or a swim at the beach!
Here’s to a great summer!
-Matt Gurney / CEO
