The Hoogland family business started in Springfield moving to Nashville

The Hoogland family business known for starting the Family Video chain in Springfield, which grew to 800 stores before closing in 2021, is moving its corporate office to Tennessee.

Keith Hoogland, president and chief executive officer of Glenview, Illinois-based Highland Ventures, Ltd., made the announcement on the corporation’s website. A September opening is planned for the Nashville offices.

Meanwhile, Gus Gordon, executive director of the Hoogland Center for the Arts, said he did not expect any changes to the building’s name despite the move.

Charles and Kathleen Hoogland donated $1 million from the Hoogland Family Foundation to the Springfield Performance Center endowment fund in 2004. The donation gave the Hooglands the opportunity to name the building.

Officials at the University of Illinois Springfield said Monday that the Hoogland name will remain in the atrium of the Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC). The couple also donated $1 million through the foundation when TRAC was built. It was opened in 2007.
