Camper’s Inn HQ move prompted by staff needs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Ben Hirsch, chief operating officer for Camper’s Inn, told the Florida Times-Union that the dealership is expecting to add 22 jobs to Jacksonville over the next three years, but he said that could be conservative.

“Dealerships tend to grow pretty quickly when the headquarters is there,” he said. “We’ll probably double in size.

“We can have a hard time attracting people to New England because of the cost of living, tax rates and weather,” he told the Florida Times-Union. It costs the company an average of 15 percent to 20 percent more per employee in New Hampshire than it does in Jacksonville.
