Consumer Cellular, Inc. Key Developments

Consumer Cellular Expands Presence in Arizona

Consumer Cellular continues its growth trajectory by relocating its Phoenix customer support center to a new facility in Tempe, allowing the company to add hundreds of employees to its existing staff of more than 1,000 employees companywide. Consumer Cellular's new 85,245 square foot customer service center is located in the Tempe Commerce Park at 7410 S. Roosevelt Street. The company currently has more than 280 employees in the Phoenix-Tempe area and plans to add an additional 300 by May 2015. Consumer Cellular focuses its efforts on the market of adults 50+ who do not wish to be confined by long-term contracts or the rigidity of typical pre-paid and post-paid options. Consumer Cellular allows customers to customize their plans, as well as the ability to switch plans at any time without penalty, and provides phones and plans that are affordable, flexible and designed to fit their needs.
