Review of Cookeville, Tennessee

Definitely growing
Star Rating - 12/25/2006
Cookeville is definitely growing. In spite of a couple of major factory closings, there was a net increase of about 800 jobs between August and October 2006. In October 2006 Oreck (the vacuum cleaner people) moved about 100 jobs from its Mississippi factory to Cookeville, and in December 2006 they announced they're moving the rest of the factory to Cookeville, an additional 450 jobs. Averitt Express, which is headquartered in Cookeville, has announced it's adding over 400 jobs in Cookeville. Bank deposits have increased by 12 percent in the last year to about $1.2 billion. With all the retail expansion and the historic neighborhoods downtown, it's becoming quite an attractive city.
