COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Hundreds of new jobs and an investment into an old grocery store is expected to bring a huge economic impact to Columbus, according to the Columbus Chamber of Commerce.
Global CallCenter Solutions, a customer service company new to Columbus, is expected to revitalize the area near its location off Buena Vista Road. The company is on its way to hiring 600 employees.
I think we will be looking at hiring almost every week," said Executive Vice President Megha Heightman. "So, its going to be an ongoing process so lets see about two ,three ,four years to get to the 600 number.
This kind of hiring is expected to make a multi-million dollar impact on the local community. Brian Sillitto, executive vice president for economic impact at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, said the people hired here, will be able to spend their paychecks at other places, possibly prompting more jobs and stores opening.
Whether its fast food or auto parts store, theres a daycare center right there, Synovous has a bank right there. I just see the ripple effect this project will have on the economy. The type of people who are working there are really going to lift that area and that whole part of town," said Silletto.
