Standing on the corner in Memphis Tennessee under the famous neon sign, the one that says Welcome to World-Famous Beale Street, Home of the Blues, Birthplace of Rock n’ Roll, it’s hard not to feel a little rhythm.
The roots of ‘Bluff City’ run very deep, its borders framing the southwestern edge of the state. Arkansas lies just across the river to the immediate west and the state of Mississippi is just below the city’s southern line.
When it comes to music, it’s hard to mention Memphis without talking about Elvis. He made his first professional recording at Sun Studios and of course, this is where you’ll find his incomparable Graceland.
If you are looking for a place with all the comforts of a big city but the slow charm of the southern pace, Memphis is the ticket. Long considered a hotbed of creative energy and talent, more and more entrepreneurs are calling Memphis home every day.
There are lots of great companies calling Memphis home too. FedEx has called Memphis home since the 70s and maintains its headquarters right alongside the likes of Autozone, Servicemaster, International Paper, and more.
