Pepsi Beverages plans to expand its Triad call center and add about 200 jobs, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
Gov. Bev Perdue is scheduled to make an economic-development announcement at 10 a.m. on Monday at 1100 Reynolds Blvd., Winston-Salem, where the company has a call center with more than 800 workers.
The company is expected to receive state and local incentives worth as much as $800,000 if it meets hiring goals.
The new jobs will pay average annual salaries of $36,500, the newspaper reported, citing documents related to incentives approved by Forsyth County and Winston-Salem.
The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners voted last month to offer Pepsi $150,000 in incentives to expand. And the Winston-Salem City Council approved $250,000 in incentives. The local incentives will be matched by $400,000 from the state, the newspaper reported.
Pepsi officials have said that they want to consolidate six other call centers across the country into four. Pepsi also considered expanding in Fargo, N.D., Plano, Texas, and Chicago, the newspaper reported.
