Let's see, better suited for Random Akron-Canton Development Thread in P&C or Ohio Business and Economy?Master, a more descriptive thread title and a url to the press release would also be appreciated.
The owner's quote says "the Akron operations will start with 30 employees in July and should build up its ranks by 50 to 60 new employees a month."Starting with 30, and adding the upper prediction of 60 per month, the business won't reach Plusquellic's claim of 300 until December, 2009 or the ABJ's touted level of 1,500 until June, 2011.
Robert Madden said the company's new name, PlusOne Communications, is to honor Plusquellic.''We thought the one way to give Don a little bit of appreciation to help jump start this part of town is to take part of his name and add the number one. It's plus one building at a time,'' he said. ''Our name really truly does come from the vision that Don created.''Quipped Plusquellic, who is in the middle of a recall election: ''I'm sure the bloggers will be accusing me of making out for selling my name rights. I didn't even receive a dollar for that, so we're allowing that to happen without any compensation.
I can't see that many people working in this building. My understanding is the building had at most 80-100 people working in it originally when it was a bank. I can see maybe 200-300 people working there and if in 2 shifts they can double that. Beyond that, it will be a workforce taking calls remotely or one hell of a cramped boiler room..
