Collierville is a 150-year-old city with a small-town feel and big-time business growth, just minutes away from a vibrant, urban metropolis. We’ve got a high standard of living with the numbers to back it up.


Collierville is beautifully suburban, comfortably small and anything but sleepy. While just minutes from everything Memphis has to offer, this community has a character all its own. Residents fall in love with its charm, history and desirable attributes – and they are not the only ones who’ve noticed what this city’s got.



Economic development and a thriving community go hand-in-hand; that’s why it’s no surprise that in Collierville, business is booming. The Memphis metropolitan area is not only home to several corporate headquarters (FedEx, International Paper, AutoZone and ServiceMaster), but is also a major transportation hub for railways, airways, highways and waterways. One of Collierville’s greatest strengths is its access to a large, educated labor force.
