More jobs are coming to Elk Grove as Apple plans to expand its current operations in the city.
The company recently purchased an office space that used to be DeVry University on Laguna Boulevard, according to The Sacramento Business Journal.
As of 2017, Apple employed more than 5,000 people at its current Elk Grove location, and the new location could add more than 100 additional jobs. Apple has had a distribution center as well as a facility for repairs and refurbishments in Elk Grove for years.
This new expansion further solidifies the technology giant’s relationship with Elk Grove and is further evidence of how strong the local economy is. The news comes on the heels of a new Costco opening (employing more than 100 full-time and 100 part-time employees), more restaurants on their way, a new aquatic center and an incentive program to bring more startups to Elk Grove.
