Faulkner County makes the grade when it comes to attracting businesses. Its proximity to Central Arkansas' colleges and universities is one of the reasons why HP chose it for a customer service and support center that provides 1,000 jobs.
Located smack dab in the center of the state, the county is home to the University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College and Central Baptist College, and is one of the most rapidly growing areas in the Little Rock metro region.
A supportive business environment, tight-knit communities and affordability have also helped Faulkner County build a diversified base. Manufacturing, technology and retail all contribute to the local economy.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
