Our team is working diligently to advance the development of a “shovel-ready” 1000+ acre supersite to attract a generational economic development project that could lead to thousands of new jobs and the potential for billions in private investment for Central Arkansas. After years of planning and behind-the-scenes work, 2024 will be a monumental year for the supersite as land acquisition is expected to be completed, as well as the construction of an industrial grade road, a new rail track, decommissioning of on-site structures, completion of necessary due diligence studies, and the development of critical utility infrastructure to serve the site. #LoveLittleRock #ActBigThinkBig #EconomicDevelopment

In December, Elopak announced its selection of Little Rock for a $70 million facility after evaluating 25 locations across 5 states. In the final stages of the project, Little Rock was not the biggest site considered. In fact, it was the smallest, but “it acted big, it thought big,” according to Reinard Dreesmann, the company’s Vice President for the Americas. Over the next 10 weeks, we’ll reveal ways Little Rock is #actingbig and how we're #thinkingbig about the future of our region. Learn more: https://youtu.be/xijHCGXrnmQ

HAPPY NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER DAY! As soon as you step out of your car in the parking lot of the SKIPPY Peanut Butter production facility in Little Rock, you're hit with the strong and delicious smell of peanuts. 🥜 That's because approximately 800,000 pounds of peanuts are brought to the plant by rail car each day, translating into more than 3.5 MILLION pounds of peanut butter each week in 11 varieties. So, if you have a jar of Skippy in your pantry, just remember that it's all thanks to Metro Little Rock's extensive rail system for deliveries and distribution. The Skippy facility opened in 1977 and it has succeeded over the past few decades because of the innovative spirit of our area's workforce and our ability to adapt and streamline production to stay ahead of the curve in modern food processing. It's why we are thrilled to say Happy National Peanut Day! . . . #HappyNationalPeanutButterDay #EconomicDevelopment #LoveLittleRock

WELCOME TO THE TEAM! We are very happy to introduce you to Anna Vick, our newest Manager of Member Development. She will be an exceptional addition to our team, engaging and supporting our community businesses. Here are some fun facts about Anna: 🏡 She was a realtor and helped numerous families move to central Arkansas! ⛰️ Her idea of a perfect day in Little Rock is an early hike on Pinnacle Mountain, then brunch with friends, an afternoon at a museum or lecture, and dinner downtown followed by live music. 🥁 She's a former drum line captain, so don't be surprised if we start walking in straight lines! 😍
