NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Ramsey Solutions CEO Dave Ramsey announced today that Ramsey Solutions will invest $52 million to expand its corporate headquarters in Franklin and create 600 jobs.
Ramsey Solutions will build a second office building, totaling nearly 192,000 square feet and six stories, on its corporate campus in Williamson County. This is part of Ramsey Solutions’ continued expansion, which started in 2015 when the company closed on 47 acres of land in the Berry Farms development.
In 2019, the Ramsey team moved into the first six-story office building, which includes podcast and radio studios, more than 200,000 square feet of workspace, a team member cafeteria, a bookstore and coffee shop for guests watching “The Dave Ramsey Show” live in the studio. This latest expansion will accommodate the company’s continued growth. Construction on the second office building began in August 2019 and is expected to be completed in May 2021.
Since 2015, TNECD has supported more than 30 economic development projects in Williamson County, representing approximately 5,100 job commitments and nearly $485 million in investment.
