Austin would be a nightmare if they want to surround their HQ with distribution sites. Literally has 2 of the 10 worst stretches of highway in the U.S.

Going to a state with no individual income tax is a bonus to help sell existing employees and new hires on to but what matters is a cheaper overall cost of living most likely.
If that were the case, the only areas of Florida with cheaper costs of living would be in the northern part of the state, and I don't see them going to a place like Jacksonville or Pensacola.

Last year I would have been against it. But since those aholes decided to start charging Missourians sales tax even though they technically don't have to, might as well.

Last time I checked the cost of living in Austin was not cheap, University escorts have gone up a hundred this year alone and rents are super high running $250 month more than TX and $150 more than USA. They rank 117 vs 100 in COL costs.

KC is much cheaper than Austin in rents and equal in everything else.

Compared to the rest of the country, Kansas City Metro Area's cost of living is 6.10% Lower than the U.S. average.

Compared to the rest of the country, Austin's cost of living is 17.40% Higher than the U.S. average.

I will say Austin is hip for younger employees living in urban settings compared to KC

Cummin's has a hard time recruiting because there is little nightlife (social opportunities) near their headquarters in Columbus, IN but Austin does have nightlife and college amenities in their favor.

So I call bullshit on your Austin COL claims

I don't think KC has much of a shot. If they go midwest, I imagine it'd be Minneapolis, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Denver. Cities with younger populations, large or appealing metro areas, more affordable than the coasts.

I'm not convinced it'll be midwest, though.

They will want attractive incentives, a deep resource pool, and cheap associated costs.

It would be a great thing for KC but they don't stand a chance really.

According to my fiancÚ, it's in Payson. Apparently that's not exactly a suburb of Phoenix, but more in the mountains?

We'll be in Phoenix one day looking around though.

I didn't say it was cheap, but it's affordable given its size. If Amazon knocks out places without public transportation or enough direct flights, that puts Austin very high on the short list when it comes to affordability. And Public transportation also gives a lot more flexibility to live wherever you want.

My guess is Atlanta. Georgia Tech, existing logistics staffing, major airline hub, relatively low cost of living. Their sprawl may hurt them though. I'd consider Chicago if it weren't for the crime and government instability. People are fleeing Cook County.
