This is wonderful news for this area of the nation and of Mississippi. Toyota will have a great resource in potential employees and it will give this region a tremendous economic boost!

I think this is an economic boost for our area. Although some do not particulairly accept change very well this should be accepted and welcomed with open arms. Economic growth is just what north mississippi needs.

Great news. I do not know who all was involved in making this happen but my hats off to all of you. This was a very competitive endeaver and you were going against some sites that were permitted, sitework nearly completed, and existing sites that would have just needed some updates, but somehow you convinced the powers to be to accept your site instead. I may not live in Mississippi now, but I have always been proud of being born and raised around Tupelo (Baldwyn to be exact). Congrads again.

Tupelo was probably chosen, because the Japanese prime minister is a huge fan of Elvis Presley.
