Charlotte Relocation Grows As Companies Continue to Expand to the Queen City

Charlotte Relocation Grows As Companies Continue to Expand to the Queen City

The Charlotte relocation continues as the economy tries to rebound from the current recession.  Many sectors these days continue to suffer especially the housing and banking industries but other groups including the medical sector continue to grow.  Charlotte relocation has been the main reason for it's strong growth during the past two decades.

Job Reports

Two recent reports are showing signs that the economy is growing. On Monday, the Charlotte Observor reported, "Hospitality services company Compass Group USA Inc. said Monday it will bring 200 jobs to Charlotte as it moves some corporate positions to its headquarters here."  According to the article, North Carolina has added incentives for more job growth as The Compass Group USA already has established its North American headquarters here about 17 years ago.   The Charlotte Business Journal has recently reported that Charlotte relocation is growing and that North Carolina should expect a 2.7% economic growth overall in 2011 compared to only a 1% growth for 2010.

Democratic National Convention

Good news about Charlotte relocation is exciting to many as the economy appears to moving forward.  On February 1, 2011, it was announced that the National Democratic Convention will be held in Charlotte in 2012.  This is a great coup for the city and should bring welcomed jobs and an influx of money pouring in, especially for the hotel and hospitality sectors.  Charlotte relocation has always been strong and has been a great landing place for jobs and people alike due to the climate, regional beauty and proximity to the mountains and coast.  The growth of Charlotte and the surrounding area has consistently been near the top for destinations to relocate to.

Charlotte Region

The Charlotte region consists of an eight county area along the North Carolina and South Carolina border.  The Charlotte relocation area has three large lakes: Lake Norman, Lake Wylie and Mountain Island Lake. Two major interstates, I-77 and I-85 run directly through the heart of Charlotte.  A newer outer loop called I-485 has made Charlotte expand out to make it easier to commute and allow the smaller towns to grow together.  Over the years, farm land became subdivisions and made the Charlotte region into one big city.  Towns that make up the Charlotte region include Matthews, Mint Hill, Concord, Kannapolis, Huntersville, Davidson, Mooresville, Gastonia, Mount Holly, Rock Hill, Weddington, Monroe and Waxhaw.

About Charlotte

Most people know that Charlotte is the second largest banking city in the United States behind New York City, but other interesting facts about Charlotte relocation include:  two large hospital systems, home of the majority of NASCAR teams including the NASCAR Hall of Fame, three of the largest shopping malls in North Carolina along with major business parks including Ballantyne and South Park.  Charlotte is also home of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats along with minor league Hockey, Baseball and Soccer.  Charlotte also hosts a PGA event in the Quail Hollow Championship that has drawn a strong playing field each year. Charlotte continues to grow despite the economy and jobs continue to expand in the Charlotte area.
