Forbes ranks Tennessee cities #2 for Best Big Cities for Business 2013

Forbes Magazine has issues its 2013 ranking of the “Best Big Cities for Business” and four Tennessee metropolitan areas made the list in the top ten ranking. Even better than being in the top, these Tennessee cities share the number 2 spot.

 Forbes ranks Nashville, Davidson, Murfreesboro and Franklin as the number 2 in best big cities for business in the USA.

The magazine declared the ranking of these Tennessee metro-centers reflects the power of economic diversity that the state has made its mainstay. Coupled with ample cultural amenities, pro-business policies and a mild climate, Tennessee enjoys admirable attributes which bring it renewed consideration in attracting industry and job creation. Nashville’s 3.8% expansion in employment last year, and 7% growth since 2008, has been propelled by business services, education and health.
