Code name “Domus” ended up being one of the largest developments in eastern Idaho last year. “Domus” is the term local leaders came up with because they knew that once word got out that Allstate was interested in our area, the competition in the intermountain west would heat up.
A lot of it comes down to the people in our community. The quality of life and a strong workforce are what attracted Allstate to Chubbuck in the first place.
After an exhausting nine months of negotiations in which officials from the insurance giant scouted out cities from Lava Hot Springs to Atomic City, Allstate announced plans to build a $22 million customer service center in Chubbuck.
Along the way, we followed the progress of the facility which was being built by a nearly 100 percent local workforce. When they opened last fall, the mayor of Chubbuck proclaimed that this was one of the “very most important days” in the history of the city.
Allstate is the largest employer in Chubbuck and its impact continues to be felt throughout the region.
“It’s been a great year for us,” said Jody Lewis, Chubbuck Site Manager. “In fact, this year we are going to contribute $7.5 million to the local economy just in salaries. We’ve spent over $1 million in development and training for our employees. We’ve promoted 20 people and now we have a little over 250 people working here now.”
A major component of their success is in the relationships they’ve forged within the community and this includes the local university.
“Absolutely, ISU has been a great partner,” continued Lewis. “In fact we have a part time class, it’s the first time for Allstate and it’s working out really well.”
Allstate continues to hire and they are currently recruiting for the next class that begins in January.
