The opportunity of a lifetime


Here, you’ll find one of the most devoted workforces in the country—despite the fact that it’s based in the most economically distressed county in our state. We believe so strongly in this community that the State of Tennessee is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to the most eligible company. Backed by an investment of more than $2 million, a 17,750-square-foot call center facility is available absolutely rent-free. The catch? Put the hardworking, dependable people of Hancock County to work.
