According to Gavin Frisbee, CEO of Coastal Hospitality and Co-Founder of JobTREX, “We plan on hiring 500 locals in each of our locations; Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Louisville, Linden, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Rock Hill, Silver Spring and Washington DC, within the next year”.
