Business-friendly and affordable

As a part of the Nashville area, Gallatin residents benefit from an overall cost of living
that is consistently below the U.S. average. Among major U.S. cities, the Nashville area
has long had one of the most favorable climates for high levels of disposable income
relative to costs.

Of particular note, the Nashville area is at 88.9 percent or nearly 10 percent below
the national average for cost of living for the entire U.S.–not just major metropolitan
areas. That’s a major selling point for many companies looking to locate a facility. It’s
not only that we offer a lower cost of doing business, but it’s more affordable for
employees to live here as well.
