Kannapolis, one of the fastest-growing cities in North Carolina and the Charlotte region, has become a business hotspot.
The city, which offers a competitive tax structure, an ideal location, workforce availability and a pro-business attitude, has moved from its textile and manufacturing past to a future that is geared toward new health and business opportunities. The 350-acre North Carolina Research Campus, for example, has eight nationally renowned health sciences university programs and has created hundreds of jobs.
Economic development is a top priority for Kannapolis.

Many companies, including Gordon Foods, are thriving — and will continue to thrive — in the city’s unique business-friendly climate.
