Fanatics, one of the top 50 global internet retail companies, is investing $10 million to expand its local IT footprint. The project will add 80 new jobs in the headquarter and IT space. These very high-wage IT jobs will be advancing the technology for mobile device purchasing of Fanatics products around the world. The company is leasing 58,000 square feet of office space in Cypress Point Business Park from local developer HGL Properties LP LTD.
Fanatics, which began in 1995 as a brick-and-mortar storefront in Jacksonville, has three locations in Jacksonville — two in the northwest area and one in Southside.
