Local Economy Posted On: 5/17/2008 5:34:06 PM
The two biggest employers in Asheville are the local hospital and the Biltmore estate. The two primary drivers of the economy are healthcare and hospitality. There is no big industry here. Greenville, SC, about 1.5 hour South has many corporate headquarters as well much industry driving the local economy. Knoxville, TN also appears to have a large amount of industry.
This is a nice place to retire... but there are limited opportunities to work if you wish to work into your retirement (and are not in the hospitality field or in healthcare.)
