Making Headlines: Grand Incentives to Add 60 Jobs in Manatee County
The story just broke and has already spread like wildfire in cyberspace. Initially featured in print in The Bradenton Herald, it’s been perpetually making virtual headlines. Here are the highlights:
Who: Grand Incentives, Inc. your travel and lifestyle incentives membership and marketing company (that’s us!).
What: Adding 60 jobs that expect to pay 115 percent of Manatee County’s average wage.
When: Over a span of five years with a good portion being added within the next 60 to 90 days. Grand Incentives has already begun hiring and training new employees, approximately 20 to date.
Where: We added 9,200 square feet to our existing 14,000-square-foot headquarters operation in Sarasota, Florida to support this large-scale effort. The new, state-of-the-art facility opened September 12th.
Why: We recently acquired a significant membership base from a large online travel company. Those members will become part of our feature product, Coast to Coast Grand Getaways, a travel membership club that caters to the avid traveler.
Grand Incentives has received support from both the county and state in the form of performance incentives, assistance with impact fees and the provision of training grants.
Headquartered in south Manatee County, Grand Incentives has operations in North, South and Central America with 95 employees… and growing.
