What Bert Has To Say About Sioux Falls Metro Area

Sioux Falls is the state’s largest city and most important commercial and cultural center. This fairly typical Midwestern city has a strong and diverse economy based not only on local activities like agriculture but also a significant presence in the service economy, especially banking and credit processing. Because of low taxes, a good labor force, and business-friendly state laws, Wells Fargo, Citibank, HSBC, and others have large processing operations here. This results in future job growth projections that are strong for the region.
