Creative Lodging Solutions, a national travel company based in Lexington, will expand to a new office in Fayette County and add 120 new jobs, Gov. Steve Beshear announced Tuesday.
"It's always exciting to see a business grow its global presence in Kentucky," Beshear said in a news release. "Creative Lodging Solutions' innovative services are having a big impact on national business travel."
Founded in 2002 by Michael Tetterton, Marsha Couch and Carolyn Hundley, CLS provides customized lodging programs for corporate clients nationwide, specializing in long-term and project-based stays for business travel.
CLS is moving from an 18,000-square-foot office on Harrodsburg Road to 60,000 square feet of the long-vacant space formerly occupied by Kroger on Beaumont Centre Circle.

CLS employs 134 people and is expected to almost double its work force in the next four years. The company also plans to invest nearly $5.5 million in the project.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority gave preliminary approval for as much as $1.7 million in tax incentives for the project.
