Pizza Hut like Dominoes are average eats; it improves the taste ONLY if you are super hungry.  You'll pay $30 or more for a large pizza with multiple toppings here in the city if you want a quality pizza like Pappa Johns...

Oklahoma City Costco to Acquire Hertz at Quail Springs



Massive Hertz 225,000 square foot, 4-story building at a company-owned office building near Quail Springs is rumored to be the site for Costco's new operations center.

Oklahoma City Economic Development Trust approved an incentives plan that would bring a Costco operations center to the city; it would create more than 1,000 jobs over the next three years.

The new jobs' annual would pay $44,606 (first year wage) growing to $59,740 (third year wage) of operations; they anticipate the new operations center to hire an estimated 1,044 employees.  According to KOCO-TV news, the jobs would reflect a new non-retail sales related business presence in Oklahoma City by Costco.

Capital investment in this project by the company, including the purchase of an existing facility and the furniture, fixtures and equipment, would be in excess of $25,000,00O.

OKCTalk.com reported Wednesday that the Hertz property, a 225,000 square foot, 4-story building at a company-owned office building near Quail Springs Mall is the target to house the operations center.

Hertz employees at their operations on NW Expressway is where consolidations are being made at that operations center.

The garage is on schedule to be finished before the opening of the new convention center and the 605 room Omni Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City.
