Not only is Cullman County one of the fastest-growing areas in Alabama, it is evolving in a way that is attracting businesses and young professionals. Despite its longtime perception as a younger sibling of sorts to its bigger city neighbors, the community is "growing up" while not sacrificing its small-town charms that have always been appealing.
“There’s just so much going on in Cullman right now,” says Kyle Willoughby, vice president of Willoughby Roofing & Sheet Metal and member of the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce executive board. “Cullman has always been a great place to live and raise a family. But the city has grown enough that we have some good industry and businesses coming into the city.
“We want to keep moving forward and make this a better city. But while we grow, we also want to stay true to our roots.”
