New jobs are coming to Greeley and Weld County! TeleTech Holdings, Inc. has plans to hire 500 new workers for a new call center in Greeley. The new call center will go into the former Kmart store at 2400 29th Street just west of the Greeley Mall.

"Call centers are expanding and growing," said Cathy Schulte, senior vice president Upstate Colorado Economic Development, which represents Weld County.

TeleTech will have a presence in Weld County comparable to a call center launched there in late 2010 by Afni Inc, an Illinois company. Denver-based customer support firm Startek also has a large facility in Weld County.
