Minnesota’s third-largest city and one of the major medical hubs in the United States, Rochester, Minnesota is home to over 111,000 people in the city limits, and over 211,000 folks in the overall metropolitan area. It is the seat of Olmstead county, sitting right on the Zumbro River, and can trace its roots back to 1855. It is an award-winning city, having been named Money magazine’s “Best Place to Live” numerous times, featured in the “10 Best Cities for the Next Decade” from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and has ranked in the top ten in both “Best Places to Grow Up” and “Best Cities for Job Seeking Retirees” by US News and World Report.
One of the big reasons for this is Rochester’s hub as an economic force. At the forefront is the Mayo Clinic, an internationally renowned medical practice and medical research group. This attracts many people looking for work in the medical field, and brings in talent from across the country. IBM also has one of their largest plants here, while agricultural interests such as Seneca Foods and Kerry Flavours also provide jobs.
Of course, it takes more than just a promise of employment to bring folks to a town, and Rochester offers plenty. There are more than 100 park sites throughout the city, covering over five square miles of land. Our Rochester Art Center offers numerous programs, exhibits, and performance, while during the summer, “Thursdays On First” takes place regularly, bringing musicians to play all along First Avenue in downtown Rochester. Rochester also excels at education, with nearly a dozen college and university branches, including the Mayo Medical School and University of Minnesota Rochester.
Whether you’re one of the many employees at Mayo, a student who commutes into one of our colleges or universities, or a longtime resident of the area, when you need repairs and services for your vehicle, you want to bring it to someone you trust.
