Tennessee Featured in Fortune 500 Special Issue

In this year’s Fortune 500 special issue of Fortune magazine in which the best of the best in business are featured, Tennessee highlights reasons it is a great place to locate a business. Yes, the more populous, lower unemployment regions featured like Nashville and Memphis are great places, but there is more in Tennessee. Hickman County is less than an hour from Nashville and about two hours from Memphis on Interstate 40.

Check out Tennessee in the Fortune 500 special issue. If you like what you see, give us a call in Hickman County. You don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company or even employ 50 people to be warmly welcomed in our business community.
