Sutherland Global Services setting up shop in Las Vegas
Sutherland Global Services, a provider of technology-enabled, business process services around the world, is planning to set up an operations foothold in Las Vegas.
"This announcement is a major boost to Southern Nevada," said Gov. Brian Sandoval. "The expansion of Sutherland Global Services will help build a diversified, shared-services economy and provide excellent vocational training and employment opportunities through the creation of sustainable jobs that are essential to our goal of creating the new Nevada."
"I met with the executives of Sutherland Global Services – it's a fast-growing, award-winning company – and it's exciting to see how much they're already working with community partners, universities, hiring Nevadans and becoming a key part of this state's bright future."
Though it is not known when the center will open, Sutherland has already begun training people for management and staff positions at its future offices at 8725 W. Sahara Ave., the site of a former Citibank call center. Sutherland offers its employees in-depth training and growth opportunities.
Sutherland, based in Rochester, N.Y., is spread across 61 locations in 19 countries and employs more than 36,000 people. It provides its clients back office processes and customer management services, enabled by technology and robotics process automation. Sutherland is the largest privately held business process and IT enable-services company. It partners with Fortune 500 clients, new economy companies and federal and state governments.
Sutherland has been around since 1986 and has offices in the U.S., Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, Estonia, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, the Philippines, Slovakia, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
Sutherland services several industries including communications technologies, platforms, networks and devices, online retail and delivery services, technology, healthcare, government, insurance, financial services and the travel and logistics industry.
"The fact that this rapidly growing, international company has selected our market is a reflection of our friendly business climate, favorable workforce, and aggressive approach in recruiting companies to Southern Nevada," said Jonas Peterson, CEO and president of the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance. "We're pleased to welcome Sutherland to Nevada and proud to have supported them throughout the process."

Gobble starts delivering prepared fresh meals
A California-based fresh meal delivery service has expanded its reach to Las Vegas.
The company, named Gobble, delivers its 10-minute dinner kits to the front door. The meals are designed to cook in the 10 minutes and in one pan.
"We decided to expand to Las Vegas due to high customer demand," said Gobble's founder Ooshma Garg. "Hundreds of area residents had already signed up for the service, even though Gobble wasn't yet marketing it in the Las Vegas area. I started Gobble because I didn't have time to cook but wanted to cut down on takeout and eat healthy meals. Our customers tell us that Gobble is the best option for families that want to cook and eat healthy meals together, but don't have hours to dedicate to cooking each week."
Gobble menu choices were prepared by Executive Chef Thomas Ricci, who was a Michael Mina protÃ©gÃ© and a chef de cuisine at LB Steak in San Jose.
Gobble does all the prep work in house and delivers a ready-to-go meal. Ingredients are freshly pre-chopped, pre-mixed and pre-cooked. It serves several freshly made meals including chicken marsala with broccoli and orzo, mushroom and parsnip stroganoff and several others.
The service has been successfully operating in California for the past year and owners decided to start offering services in Las Vegas in January.
Gobble is offering Las Vegas clients the first week free for signing up for the service at www.gobble.com/lasvegas.
Pricing starts at $11.95 per meal and there is no minimum order for the service.
