Future Looks Bright for Benson

May 4, 2018

The Town Of Benson has a bright future ahead, according to Town Manager Matt Zapp, so there’s plenty for businesses and residents alike to anticipate with positive foresight. Mr. Zapp offered those upbeat and excited predictions during Thursday’s Coffee Connections hosted by the Benson Area Chamber of Commerce. Citing the recent installation of broadband in the downtown area, the soon-to-be completed Hampton Inn adjacent to Interstate 95, the new Benson Dog Park and proposed improvements by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Mr. Zapp painted a bright picture for the future of the Johnston County town. “We have had $80 million of commercial or economic development in 36 months,” he said. “We have developed 225 new jobs within the city limits and we’ve embraced our friends just outside the city limits.”
