INSTAWORK LAUNCHES ACROSS LAS VEGAS
The Leading On-Demand Staffing App Brings More Economic Opportunity to the Area For Gig Workers and Hospitality Businesses
Las Vegas, NV (June 13, 2019) - Instawork, the leading on-demand staffing app for gig workers and hospitality businesses, announced today its expansion across Las Vegas to help create economic opportunity for local workers and hospitality businesses. The gig marketplace enables local residents to find high paying work fast and helps businesses find quality workers. As part of this expansion, Instawork is also opening a Las Vegas office and hiring full-time positions.
Over the past several months, Instawork has announced $30 million in funding and now operates in six U.S. markets: the Bay Area, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and Greater Phoenix.
Las Vegas was the logical next market for Instawork’s expansion due to extremely high demand from thousands of local professionals and businesses requesting the marketplace. In addition, Las Vegas has one of the nation’s largest hospitality and tourism industries with more than one million tourists visiting a week. More than 450,000 jobs support the industry, which generate strong demand and opportunity for gig professionals and local businesses.
“Las Vegas is known for having one of the most vibrant tourism and hospitality industries in the world,” said Kris Cuaresma-Primm, General Manager of Instawork, Las Vegas. “More than one million people work in Las Vegas and nearly half of those are in the hospitality industry. We believe Instawork can help support the growing demand on each side of the marketplace in Las Vegas.”
The top reasons Professionals come to Instawork are the flexibility around where and when they want to work, higher pay, and substantial shifts. In fact, over 50% of Professionals are referred by friends and family, and on average, Las Vegas Professionals make an average of $100 a shift.
