Kentucky, who knew? Apparently many people in corporate real estate. According to a new post in The Lane Report, “Central Kentucky has a highly educated workforce, a culture of innovation and the infrastructure to support entrepreneurs and established businesses alike. Located at the crossroads of Interstates 75 and 64, the region is within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the nation’s population.”

Among those that have corporate headquarters in Kentucky are A&W Restaurants, which has more than 900 locations across the U.S. and Asia; bedding manufacturer Tempur Sealy, Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance, printing supplier Lexmark, software maker Rubicon, and biotech firm Alltech. 

“Combined with the allure of horses and bourbon, it’s no wonder that the region is home to more than 70 company headquarters from a variety of industries that are key to the nation and the world’s business climate,” the article said.
