A Better Mid-South: ServiceMaster

A Better Mid-South: ServiceMaster

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5

The news that ServiceMaster will be moving their corporate headquarters into the former Peabody Place Mall is a major boost for the City of Memphis.

I, like a lot of you, have been concerned about the huge empty building sitting in the middle of the downtown district.

Empty buildings, of course, are not good for the health of a city.

I could not be happier the leaders at ServiceMaster saw the benefit of staying in Memphis and making an even bigger and more visual mark on our city.

I can just imagine the activity and revenue 12-hundred employees will bring to downtown.

What else would you like to see happen to enhance the business community in Memphis?  Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post a message to my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.

Keeping the ServiceMaster headquarters right here in Memphis and the Mid-South will make this A Better Mid-South.
