Answer Fort Smith completed a $1.7 million renovation of a newly designed 35,000 square foot call center facility at 5805 Highway 271 South in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
The company renovated a former CV’s Grocery Store to accommodate its plans to triple in size, according to the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce. Currently, Answer Fort Smith employs 60 people; over the next three years, they plan to hire 150 new people.
Hugh Jones of Answer Fort Smith said, “Answer Fort Smith is thrilled to relocate to this new facility and have the opportunity to put more citizens from our area back to work. For more than 30 years we’ve provided professional services and with this expansion, Answer Fort Smith will be poised for a very successful future. We are grateful for the assistance and cooperation from the Fort Smith Chamber, the City of Fort Smith, and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission in helping make this project a reality.”
“Answer Fort Smith has been a great corporate citizen for many years. It’s exciting to see a homegrown company expand in our community. We hear it all the time; small businesses make up the majority of new jobs in this country and it’s certainly true in this case. Fort Smith should be proud of the remarkable success story in Answer Fort Smith’s expansion.” said Tim Allen, President of the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce.
