Doing Business

Gallatin is the employment hub for Sumner County – and arguably the northeastern region of the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area.  Our major employers include several corporate and regional headquarters including ServPro Industries, Samick Music and The Gap’s largest distribution Center Worldwide.  Gallatin is home to Volunteer State Community College, one of the city’s largest employers along with Sumner Regional Medical Center, a LifePoint hospital, which is the county’s largest employer.  Gallatin’s new designation as a Foreign Trade Zone encourages international commerce by deferring, reducing or eliminating tariffs on goods shipped to and from companies within the zone boundaries – in a nutshell, it makes companies more competitive.

While we are close to Nashville and big-city amenities, we offer a variety of housing options from estate living and farming to townhome communities and apartments on the historic downtown square.  There is rapid bus service from Gallatin to Nashville and the City is planning for more regional mass transit options.  The Sumner County Regional Airport sits on the edge of Gallatin and is the process of expanding.

Doing business in Gallatin, TN will almost always involve the Economic Development Agency, acquiring business permits, or following the municipal code. There are many opportunities awaiting those business leaders who are looking to establish a company in Gallatin. It is a wonderful place full of promise for any type of business.
