Allstate plans new Pocatello-Chubbuck call center in 2011

Gov. Butch Otter was over in Chubbuck today for what his office promised would be a “major economic development announcement.” Now comes the news that Allstate has selected the Pocatello-Chubbuck area for a new customer information call center that will cost $21.9 million and employ more than 500 people. The 75,000-square-foot call center would open in September of 2011. Allstate vice president of direct sales and service Mark Pitchford said, “The Pocatello-Chubbuck area is a terrific community that offers an enthusiastic and energetic population from which Allstate can select the best and brightest to help deliver on our commitment to a superior customer service.”

Said Otter, “I couldn’t be happier to welcome a new corporate citizen to Idaho. Allstate’s decision to locate here is a testament to the men and women at the local and state levels who worked tirelessly to ensure this is the best place for the company to do business and create career opportunities.” You can read Allstate’s full news release here.
